Mother of award-winning Jeweler, Ronnie Henry, this talented lady is always inventive, always creating modern looks with traditional materials and symbols.
Just observe this handsome, geometric silver ring: completely contemporary in looks, it is actually a interpretation of profound tradition.
Nicely solid silver is circular on the inside, with the six sides squared off on the outside.
The inspiration is the hogan, the iconic, traditional, six-sided dwelling of the Navajo, which was usually constructed of logs.
Deeply incised lines are darkened, for graphic contrast with the highly polished silver.
The six lines chiseled in each of the six sides look like an attractive, abstract design.
They symbolize logs, and also refer to the ancient cross design for the four corners of the earth, where, it is hoped, blessings will extend.
A marvelous, contemporary design that “hides” an age-old message: the blessing of home and hearth, that encloses love and family.
Share the lore with the world, or keep it close to your heart – either way, this is a well-made, very attractive ring, with a secret.
