This very well-respected, well-known jeweler, is also an activist for the legal protection of Native jewelry.
He comes from a family of noted silversmiths and has established himself as a master of chisel work and hand-stamping.
So much so, that glancing at the solidity of the silver, and the flawless chisel- and stamp work in this bracelet, I thought it was by Jennifer Curtis, the acknowledged superstar of this style.
This bracelet is perfect in design, workmanship, finish – everything. The chiseling and stamping are precise, crisp, and clear.
The design is a blend of modern, as seen across the top of cuff, and traditional, at the stamped ends.
Geometrically exact, deeply cut rectangles march across the center of the piece, in a dazzling display of technical skill and aesthetic vision.
Striking, when worn alone, it will also look terrific when stacked with other, narrow cuffs.
This is a completely personal design that is sleek, elegant – but not formal – and created with meticulous expertise.
A very special bracelet, indeed.
