This exceptional young jeweler works in tufa cast silver, and creates contemporary pieces that relate to Navajo tradition. New to jewelry-making, he has already won blue ribbons in his first competitions. This ring incorporates his characteristic rugged texture and darkened silver, and artful juxtaposition of forms.
Simple and definitely striking: the wide band is tufa cast and antiqued silver, while all eyes are on the handsome Pilot Mountain stone, which has been placed at an unusual, very intriguing angle. The earthy green and brown of the stone is beautifully complemented by the texture of the band. Clean silver work, creative design, and good-looking stone add up to an imaginative ring that turns tradition into modern art. And at a price lovers of the unusual and artistic will applaud.
