Another discovery while organizing! This is a bracelet by Connie Tsosie Gaussoin, gifted matriarch of a renowned family of artists, universally recognized for leading edge design and meticulous silver work, as seen in this lovely, delicate piece of hers.
Sterling silver wires have been woven into a sparkling lanyard-like rope. No sharp edges to catch on your clothes or skin! Gleaming silver barrels at each end, and the hook and rings are all handmade. A translucent, trapezoid of silver holds an agate in pale hues, which completes the piece. Icy reflections from the silver coordinate with the delicate hues and faint stripes in the agate. Random black dots of different sizes resemble planets floating in a dreamy universe.
Different and dainty, this is an understated example of traditional workmanship and modern design. Beautiful, and very wearable, it is the work of an acclaimed artist. Since it is a link bracelet, really, it fits looser than a cuff.
