A younger artist who uses his flawless technique and design creativity to update traditional themes, like this elegant necklace and earring set.
He makes one-of-a-kind pieces, using hand tools, skill, and patience. Jasper has collected many awards, and many happy collectors.
Here, the artist has fabricated a stunning set, updating the traditional silver beads, beloved by Navajos and everyone else.
Long triangular beads each have three peaks; the gleaming silver is interrupted with deeply stamped, sinuous forms on each side.
These long triangular beads are linked by a pair of classic, slightly flattened rounds, which are unadorned.
The sharply straight lines of the long elements are softened by their s-shaped stampings and the round forms of the other beads.
The matching earrings feature a similar design, slightly shorter triangular beads, topped by one rounded bead, above and below.
Since all the beads are hollow, the necklace and earrings are not heavy, though the silver is substantial.
Wear both pieces together or each separately, which makes this set very versatile.
With just glistening silver, the pieces go with every color and everything from casual knitwear to dinner-and-theater clothes.
Thus, the set is quickly amortized.
Jasper is renowned for his distinctive designs, which are both unusual and beautiful – like this gorgeous ensemble.
Enjoy it – and the compliments you will receive.
