Voted Artist of the Year – again – this rodeo bull-roper, college graduate, horse trainer, activist for the protection of authentic Native jewelry, and – oh, yes, award-winning jeweler – is a busy man. From wild bulls to delicate flowers might seem a stretch, but this many-faceted artist does it all with aplomb, and beautifully. Here, he pairs top-quality, natural Bisbee turquoise – one of the three most coveted and rarest of all – along with a favorite floral motif in silver.Encased in a boxed silver setting, the gloriously blue turquoise pillows above it. Bisbee’s chocolate-maroon matrix is a dramatic contrast to that signature, intense blue. Minutely chiseled silver forms a textured frame around the whole piece, and separates the stones from the silver floral design on top.In an old children’s book, Ferdinand the Bull preferred to smell flowers than fight; Shane moves effortlessly from roping bulls to creating beautiful flowers. Delicate, detailed, decorative, flawlessly incised (or, chased), the flowers in these earrings are finely integrated into the overall design. Rare, special turquoise, superior silver work, and lovely design by a celebrated, award-winning jeweler. You can’t smell these flowers, but they will delight you forever.PS These can be changed into posts, or clips, if you wish.
