Rainbow Yei Set
[00003762]

The rainbow yei earring and bracelet set represents one of the holy or helping beings in Navajo stories, and has to do with color. Sometimes they make a bridge for travellers and sometimes people can ride on their backs. And of course they are associated with rain, always important in the Southwest, hence the storm cloud above the earring head. You can use the bracelet pattern to make a strap for the necklace or a choker if you like, and on the choker you could add either the earring pattern or the larger Navajo Storyteller necklace pattern as a pendant. To lengthen or shorten the bracelet, add or subtract red, yellow and blue bead sets from the rainbow kilts of the two yei figures. To make a choker, you might wish to add another yei or two. Four is the sacred number to Navajos (or Dine') so perhaps putting four shorter yeis together would be more apporpriate than three longer ones for the choker or strap. Or just lengthen two yeis to neck length.
