This gifted Navajo artist traded the sun of the southwest for the cooler climes of Alaska.
Recently, there, at the age of 70, he revived his creative impulses and has produced remarkable art – “drawing’ on scratchboard, and lovely jewelry.
This beautifully simple ring has a hand-hammered sterling shank and bezel, embracing a gorgeous, translucent, deep purple amethyst.
The silver is there to support the stone; the classic setting is made special by the deeply cut design of the bezel, and the hammered texture of the silver
This elegant ring is easy on the finger, and magnificent to behold.
The workmanship, though simple, is very well-made.
Perfect for those of us with champagne tastes, but not a matching budget!
