Basically self-taught, he works in both gold and silver, often making his own stamping tools.
He often likes to embellish his pieces with stones, but this band is adorned only with expert chisel and stamp work.
Parallel rows of vertical lines creates a striped effect, interrupted by an X motif; simple and strong.
Where are the stars we mentioned? On the inside!
Stamped stars and tiny circles run around the interior of the band, in a surprise design.
Parallel lines refer to rain, and dots symbolize drops of water, so this design can be appreciated both in Navajo tradition, and as a salute to our flag.
Creative design, expert workmanship, and a wonderful price, as well!
