Included in national museum shows and collections nationwide, before he turned 30 (which was not very long ago), Dylan is the 3rd generation of his family to win international acclaim for reinventing Zuni jewelry design.
He follows in his grandfather’s and mother’s footsteps, but along his own, fashion-forward, contemporary path.
This striking bracelet has a strong, geometric mosaic design using just three stones.
The inlay, of rectangular forms within a silver circle and complementary colors, resembles a contemporary color-block painting.
The simple silver cuff repeats the sleek, polished frame around the inlaid stones.
Cleverly manipulating color like a painter, this gifted jeweler has created a three-dimensional effect.
The clear turquoise rectangle seems to float above the lapis and red Venetian art glass background, with a band of more Venetian glass holding it down.
Result of playing with forms and color? An absolute stunner, in a smaller scale.
