Mark fits in his jewelry-making while going to college. Like his well-known family of prize-winning jewelers, He uses time-tried materials, techniques, and symbols. Starting from a realistic concept, he abstracts the imagery, turning tradition into contemporary. This graphic pendant depicts a wintry night scene on the Navajo reservation; snowy mountains under a starry sky.The polished silver bar represents the eye of a Yei (Navajo spirit), watching over the land and people from high in the heavens, The silver hills are nubby and pebbly, like rock; the night sky is darkened with acid, and the stars are sparkling pinpoints. A sky-blue, natural turquoise adds a gentle accent of subtle color. This is a graphic, abstract design that can be enjoyed with or without understanding the symbols – simply a very sophisticated buckle, sure to attract admiration whether worn with jeans or tailored suits.
