Until eye problems and the theft of his tools effectively ended his career, Bob Sekakuku was one of the finest traditional overlay jewelers from Hopi.
Just when we thought we had no more of his pieces, this ring turned up!
Classic Hopi overlay, its design is of lightning and other rains/water signs, traditional Hopi symbols of good luck.
The overlaid symbols are bold and precise, showing up graphically against the blackened background silver.
A very handsome ring from a highly reputed and collected artist, who is no longer working.
