This award-winning jeweler has also won recognition for his exquisite beadwork fans, rattles and staffs, inspired by artifacts used in Native American Church ceremonies.
His jewelry is equally beautiful.
This striking silver bracelet is impressive in its assertive width, variety of stamps, and wonderful blend of handsome design and impeccable workmanship.
It is further notable for the interesting textures, and slightly darkened surface.
Five-pointed stars are an innovative stamp, as are the E-like stamps on both edges.
The crescent stamps face in opposite directions, on either side of the center bands of stars. This subtle touch creates a lively energy and keeps the pattern from being too static.
Aside from the creative pattern of stamping, the stamps are deep and clear.
Darkening the background enhances the tapestry-like intricacy of the design.
His career in art progressed from two-dimensional work to beadwork, to wonderful jewelry- as this handsome, novel bracelet demonstrates so alluringly.
