One of a Kind piece
Artists: Jerry J. Nelson & Valentin A
Superb Navajo bracelet in sterling silver, inlaid with three exceptional turquoises:
- Pilot Mountain turquoise (Nevada)
- Candelaria turquoise (Nevada)
- Sleeping Beauty turquoise (Arizona)
This bracelet is striking in several ways:
Firstly, by the fact it is made by a multi-awarded artist who is Diné (Navajo), but who excels in the "channel inlay" technique, which is a Zuni process. Indeed, this stunning bracelet shows talented stone-cutting and assembly. Each turquoise rectangle is compartmentalized by fine silver bars: you can imagine the time and talent required to create this jewel!
In addition, the shank of this bracelet is finely chiselled by hand. Fine cutting details are present on the sterling silver parts, highlighting the inlay and creating some thin openwork effects revealing the skin. The type of silver chasing we see here is one of the cornerstones of Navajo jewelry.
The result is an exceptional piece, as elegant as it is powerful, typical of Native American high-end jewelry.
