Carlton is among the Zuni jewelers who experiment with unique designs and innovative materials, going far beyond traditional Zuni lapidary art.
This beautiful bracelet is traditional in materials, and abstract in design. The all-over pattern overlaid on the base cuff, is both bold and delicate.
Butterflies? Flowers? What is certain is the grace and precision of the design and its execution.
The pattern is a brilliant ensemble of raised curves. Assertive in heft, the large-scale pattern is also understated, since the silver is all the same tone.
Whether textured minutely, as on the bottom, or polished to a high sheen, as in the overlaid design, the contrast is muted.
Expert workmanship, flowing, interconnected curves and subtle textural contrasts, make this is a particularly lovely design.
Fabulous in looks; flawless in execution, this is a bracelet you will wear all the time, with everything.
