Noted as “one of the finest Native jewelers” by critics and collectors, this exceptional artist is famous for his fine inlay, premier stones, and contemporary designs.
While inlaying one beautiful piece of natural turquoise within a larger piece, he has used an uncommon technique, though one he is well-known for in his own work.
The stunning portrait is of two horses, each facing the other, with the inlaid stones as the centerpiece.
The all-over texture is created by granulation, a painstaking process of making tiny silver bits adhere to a silver base. The details are remarkably realistic. The silver bottom and frame are polished, in gleaming contrast.
A “painting in silver”, to enhance your look – can be displayed on a table or shelf, when not worn, too.
