Michael Dukepoo learned to inlay from his celebrated jeweler father, Michael Garcia, Na Na Ping.
Mike is an award-winning jeweler with many happy collectors, so it seems that worked well.
Satin-smooth, the inlaid mahogany obsidian in this contemporary cuff is seamless to the eye and touch.
The luscious warm browns and black in the unusual stone contrast with the icy gleam of the silver.
Along with the curvy, asymmetrical form, this example of masterful inlay work displays a striking contemporary flair.
However, the flowing shape suggests flowing water, which is a very traditional good luck symbol. Everything old is new, in this creative cuff!
This cuff is sleek and stunning, in both execution and design.
Unusual form, unusual material, and unusually creative, it is really a work of art, by an established, award-winning jeweler.
Wear it – and you will, a lot – and enjoy the admiration, whether at work, at play, or in the supermarket.
