Description

Known for his impressionistic paintings, as much as he is honored for beautiful jewelry, this multi-talented artist is also a community leader, advocate for Native artists, and dedicated basketball coach.

And, his recently deceased father was one of the heroic Navajo Code Talkers, who helped to win the war in the Pacific, during WWII!

In a sturdy gauge of silver, this cuff features an opulent array of splendid stones that are all natural, set above a base of inky black, natural ebony wood.

Inlaid into the ebony, are little circles of sterling silver, in varying sizes, with a few accents of inlaid natural turquoise, and one of natural red coral.

The effect is of stars and celestial bodies sprinkled across the darkness of space.

Raised  above, are refined chunks of luminous green chrysoprase, red coral, purple sugilite, blue Morenci turquoise, mother of pearl, spiderweb New Landers variscite, and rare, bright green Mawsitsit.

A dome of handsome, glittering, natural Welo opal, from Ethiopia, sits apart, in placement and shape.

This unusual collection of top-quality materials is entirely hand-cut, and set in silver.

These gorgeous stones seem to float in space, above the far-distant silver orbs.

The rectangular line-up of the sugilite, etc., subtly suggests an abstract Ye’i (Navajo spirit), up in the heavens.

Magnificent stones, with superb workmanship to match, are arranged in a design that is as creative as it is dramatically beautiful.

This bracelet represents the acclaimed artist at his finest, and it is beautifully wearable, too.

A glorious statement for your wrist, that will elevate the casual wardrobe, and embellish the more formal, everywhere in the world.
