Multi-Stone Dragonfly BraceletAaron John
Cuff of overlaid silver, stylized dragonflies on darkened background with dots of various, colored stones and shell. Center is a wider rectangle than the cuff.
Dragonflies are very good luck symbols, since they hover above waterways, and water is a precious resource in the desert southwest.
Here, a dramatic bracelet celebrates this lovely symbol. It has a modern look, but the design elements and inspiration are traditional.
Stylized and polished silver dragonflies are applied over a darkened base of silver.
The inlaid domes of varied stones, offer pops of color against the uniform grey of the silver.
The angular placement of the framed, central dragonfly is a brilliant suggestion of its darting motion.
At first glance, the decoration at either side of the center is a totally abstract design, but that transforms into a dramatic dragonfly when viewed from the side.
You will be able to explain it to the admirers who are sure to hover around you, when wearing this remarkable bracelet.
And you will wear it often, since it goes with so many things. A beautiful, creative design, extremely well-executed by this fine Navajo jeweler.
