This wonderful jeweler is a purist. He not only creates bold retro designs, he uses fabulous, natural stones in them – just like the old days. Here is another gorgeous example.Five large, luscious green, coveted, natural Carico Lake turquoise stones are set in some equally fine silver work. Hand made ropes and fluted “hogan” half-beads adorn a classic 3-band base of silver, adding a little variety of texture and scale to the smooth stones. These magnificent stones glow with rich color. The quality of the stones is unparalleled. This look-at-me bracelet has it all – significant ounces of precious natural turquoise and heavy-gauge sterling – just like the traditional past – as well as the refined technique and design skills of the present. The past never looked so new! And it will always look just as beautiful in decades to come.Sadly, this wonderful jeweler and all-around great guy was killed by a drunk driver, in September, 2012. Wright’s, and all of Indian art, mourn his passing. We miss him, and his beautiful work.
