Dylan is the 3rd generation of his family to win international acclaim for reinventing Zuni jewelry design.
He follows in his grandfather’s and mother’s footsteps, but forges his own path.
He is very conscious of art history and current fashion; this beautiful ring evokes stained glass windows, Piet Mondrian paintings, and the latest modern color block prints.
The ring is inlaid in abstract, geometric mosaic design using a variety of natural materials, including turquoise, lapis, red and pink coral, sugilite, and even a rectangle of Venetian glass.
These stones are set in sterling silver, in a traditional three-bar shank.
The centerpiece of the ring is a luminous, iridescent trapezoid of labradorite, which flashes the mysterious colors of the northern lights when ambient light hits it.
The colorful stones in the geometry of this statement ring form a gorgeous combination of the traditional and contemporary – like the influences on the artist himself.
Excellent design, scrupulous execution, and quality materials arranged by an award-winning talent add up to a stunning piece that exemplifies the new look of Native jewelry.
