A consistently prize-winning jeweler, Allison Lee produces exceptionally well-made and well-designed work.
Although he stays close to home, and does only Santa Fe Indian Market, and other local shows, Allison has received many top awards.
These include: Best of Division at the Santa Fe Indian Market (in contention for Best in Show), and the George C. West Memorial Award for Excellence in Silver Jewelry (which he has won three years in a row).
(His Native name, “Snowhawk” was given to him by his grandmother, in accordance with tradition.)
This elegantly dramatic bracelet powerfully proclaims exceptional quality.
Everything about it is first-rate: the wonderfully substantial gauge of the silver, the impeccable workmanship, and the striking design.
Despite the graphic, almost art deco, modernity of the design, it is ancient. The wavy line represents flowing water, the most precious resource there is, especially on the high desert.
Water is the source of life; it is the best luck. Happiness, good health, and prosperity follow, since water ensures ample harvests.
Remarkably handsome, this bracelet carries a profound message along with its sleek good looks. And, there is more, on the interior!
Following the Navajo belief in beauty on the inside, as well as the outside, a decorative, dainty, hand-stamped design frolics across the inside of the cuff.
It is known only to you, unless you feel like sharing, and makes this bracelet a doubly designed and fabricated piece.
Equally attractive on man or woman, this cuff will make you with larger wrists rejoice, and the rest of us green with envy.
Stack it or flaunt it alone; it is gorgeous either way.
