This highly reputed, award-winning jeweler is noted for overlaid geometric designs, in silver. Reminiscent of Navajo rug patterns, they honor his mother, who was a rug weaver.
Unlike most of his bolos, this one is more modest in size, but displays the same intricate silver work and a splendid, natural turquoise.
Combining texture, polish, and stamping, the bolo has a satisfying, symmetrical design. Centered in the gleaming, middle diamond shape, a gorgeous, pillowed, natural green turquoise seems to glow, as if struck by sunlight.
Stepped rain signs, angular storm cloud symbols, and delicately stamped scallops with parallel lines, all speak to the blessing of water.
The pattern adroitly combines triangular and rectangular shapes, with delicately stamped scalloped forms along the edges.
Handmade tips are simple but special, cut open, on the bias, at the bottom.
The form resembles the knot of a tie. This bolo can go from rodeo, to board meeting, and on to the gala, with equal aplomb.
Quality in design, in workmanship, and in the beautiful, natural turquoise, radiates from this uncommonly handsome bolo.
