Silver and Gold Squares and Stripes BraceletJohnathan Nez
In Johnathan Nez’s handsome work, you can always see the uncommonly thick heft of the silver, and the gold is equally substantial; it has to be, to support the deep stamping.
The marvelous contrast between the raised squares and the hand-chiseled border creates a certain depth that allows the entire pattern to pop.
Horizontal, chiseled lines on the ends, continue the contemporary yin to the more traditional-looking, gold yang.
The very end of each side is gently rounded for comfortable wear, a thoughtful design element.
But he didn’t stop at the outside; there is another hand-stamped design on the interior, inner beauty just for the wearer of this spectacular cuff!
This corresponds to the Navajo idea of “Hozh’o”, or beauty in every direction.
And this beauty can be worn with everything in your wardrobe, anywhere, any day.
Jeans, suits, dresses, or whatever your choice, will be happy to be paired with this splendid cuff!
