A major, award-winning artist, he is highly reputed for his precise workmanship, and the dramatic beauty of his designs, which relate to Hopi culture.
This lovely pendant exemplifies these qualities: the overlaid design is crisp, the contrast with the blackened silver background is dramatic, and the theme is traditional.
A glistening, 14-karat gold cornstalk rises against a densely darkened silver background, bordered by equally gleaming silver.
Corn is the symbol for happiness, good health, and prosperity for all the southwestern desert tribes.
Particularly for the Hopi, who rely on desert rainfall for their crops, healthy, vigorous cornstalks are a blessing.
Delicate in size and form, this pendant is nevertheless striking, with a strong, beautifully executed design.
The celebrated jeweler placed brilliantly polished gold and silver against a dark background, with an interesting and meaningful design.
With beautiful clarity, this is a smaller, but stunning, pendant by a much-honored artist, at a happy price!
