Here is your chance to acquire a delicate piece of jewelry, by this celebrated painter, jeweler, teacher and advocate, at an accessible price.
Moreover, by extension, it is a bit of American history: Ted’s late father, Mr. Ted Draper Sr. is one of the famous Navajo Code Talkers.
They devised a Navajo-based code that was never broken by our Japanese enemy, in WWII, helping to win the war in the Pacific.
This dainty band undulates around the finger in gleaming sterling silver. There is a tiny fluted bead at the front, next to the hand-cut lapis stone.
The stone is tapered and curved, to conform to the shape of the band. It adds a rich jewel tone to the sparkling silver, and continues the curved form of the silver.
Perfect in execution, delicate but striking in design, this lovely ring is a beauty – just like all of Ted’s work.
