Here is a fabulous example of beautiful work for a very modest price.
The artist couple is from To’hajilli, a Navajo enclave separated from the larger reservation, closer to Albuquerque. It was formerly known as Canoncito but chose to regain its Navajo name.
This is a daintier version than some of their other work combining copper and silver.
The allure of this cuff lies in the striking fire-and-ice contrast of the materials, the beauty of the design, the meticulous workmanship, and the seductive price.
Smoldering, burnished copper and hand-stamped, glittering silver make a dazzling pairing of opposites.
The precisely stamped and overlaid chevron design, on the silver, stands out beautifully from the smooth, glowing warmth of the copper edges.
A most unusual and successful pairing of materials, plus scrupulous technique, created a new and beautiful style.
Keeping to the unusual, the artists have stamped their names on the outside ends of the cuff.
