Geometric Multi-Stone Inlay Cuff
Award-winner Tim Yazzie worked with and learned from, the late, great Chalmers Day, whose overlay technique is celebrated.
Tim keeps the tradition alive with his own version of overlay and has a gift with inlay as well.
With a striking, contemporary version of traditional motifs, the overlay work on this cuff is precise, inventive, and raised above the darkened and textured, silver base.
The silverwork is impressive and decorative, but the real star of this imposing bracelet is the magnificent, multi-stone inlay work!
The aforementioned centerpiece was constructed using Dolomite, Jet, Sugilite, and Natural Evans Turquoise, a perfect combination of colors.
The different symbols throughout represent prayers and protection for the people of the Pueblo.
The result is happy and healthy people, so there is good luck, as well as beauty, in this bracelet.
Graphic drama in the silverwork, and the beautifully inlaid centerpiece, make this bracelet unusually handsome – and a cherished heirloom in the future.
