This young artist is known for fresh, individual, and beautifully made work. He is self-taught, and his pieces are very creative.
Favorite design motifs involve overlaid dragonflies, hummingbirds, and other graceful creatures, but here the powerful theme is rain and water.
Water, the source of life, is especially precious in the high desert country of Navajo lands.
Unexpected, in darkened silver, the cuff has a blackened base silver, overlaid with chiseled and textured lines.
Astoundingly precise and regular designs on the overlaid silver symbolize running water – the textured zig-zags – and rainfall – the delicate, parallel lines.
Darkened into a medley of grey tones, with some muted sparkle, the delicacy and precision of the workmanship and design, both, are exceptional.
Even the borders of the cuff are textured, completely integrating the design.
The interior and outer edges are highly polished and smooth, for comfort, and a sliver of contrast.
Remarkable skill, joined with a pleasing, gently dramatic design, has created this uncommon, very handsome bracelet.
Stacked with others, or on its own, it is an understated showpiece. Sized for larger wrists, so suitable for men or women.
