One of a Kind collector's piece - Navajo handcraft 

Artist: Leonard Gene (multi award winning artist)

Never seen before, this little purse of exceptional design is a high-end piece due to several details:

It begins with the large Navajo weaving inspired design that is the look on the main part of the purse. Leonard uses a combination of flat stamping along with an eye-catching repousse border. The tapestry weave makes its way to a hinged purse lid that showcases a gorgeous piece of Blue Diamond turquoise (Nevada). 

You'll find an almost blanket look around the turquoise and more of that magnificient deep stamp work. 

Leonard doesn't stop here, he finishes this museum quality piece with a double leather braided strap that is connected by even greater silver pieces. 

This purse is in sterling silver with baize lining. 


Size of the purse (in inches): 5,5" x 3,1" x 0,9" 

Size of the turquoise (in mm): 35mm x 11mm

Size of the handle including its ties (in inches): 26"

Proudly handmade in USA.
