Stuart Quandelacy is Dickie and Amy Quandelacy's son. He specializes in carving maidens. At the time of this writing, he seems to be competing with Faye as the carver of the finest maidens in the family, and is carving many more large maidens. His maidens usually have an offering jar with turquoise or multicolor corn. He also carves some elegant maidens on his fetish necklaces.
