Acclaimed for his impressionistic paintings, as much as he has been honored for beautiful jewelry, Teddy Draper Jr. is also a community leader, advocate for Native artists, and dedicated basketball coach – and, son of a heroic, Navajo Code Talker.
This spectacular bolo combines a classic shield shape and shadowbox design with a high-grade Natural Egyptian Turquoise cabochon set in a castellated bezel.
This also includes a handmade cord by Navajo (Diné) artist Leonard Gene.
The magnificence of materials, design, and workmanship are all the result of this multi-talented artist’s skill, experience, and artistry.
The artist has fashioned elegantly tapered, sterling silver tips, that do not distract from the splendor of the bolo itself but complement the overall design.
This fabulous piece is the epitome of luxurious materials, outstanding skill, and fabulous design that highlights the exceptional stone.
It is a new classic, and future heirloom piece, that you will enjoy endlessly, created by a major figure in Native arts.
