Master jeweler Carlton Jamon calls his sterling silver cuff bracelet "Zuni Lace". This all hand-fabricated cuff bracelet commands attention, as the design and center Candelaria turquoise cabochon attract the eye. Candelaria turquoise is rare, mined in Nevada and considered a gem quality stone.
Carlton utilized the overlay technique where two pieces of silver are laid over each other to create a depression. The first piece of silver was hand-cut to create this incredible lace-like layout. Uniting the two pieces of silver, in the overlay technique, makes for a stunning composition.
This cuff bracelet is about 1 1/8" at widest part, while the entire inner circumference is about 6 3/4" including the opening of 1". Signed by the artist.
Ray Tsalate's "Warrior Woman" pendant necklace is something to behold. Strung on a mouth-watering single strand of tear-drop shaped turquoise stones with energetic amethyst and pearl beads, is an incredible antler maiden ready for action.
Because she was called to battle early, her traditional hair style is unfinished. Her determined eyes are of inlaid jet with pipestone accents, and her mouth is of inlaid coral.
A fabulous small wooden arrow with a turquoise tip, and a copper bow are her accoutrement for the campaign. She's gorgeously inlaid with a serpentine and pipestone paste heartline that wraps around her.
The total length of this museum-quality pendant necklace is about 31", while the "Warrior Maiden" herself is about 4 3/8" long and 1" wide.

In Zuni the three stages of woman are celebrated, maiden, mother, and grandmother. Maiden is shown here symbolizing potential and productive prosperity. Jovanna Poblano's pretty pink mussel shell Corn-maiden is embellished with turquoise and coral accents, and is strung on a delicious stand of turquoise beads. Jovanna took time to incise her wonderful corn body and long flowing hair, and included a star and Dragonfly on this maiden's corn husk shawl. The eyes and mouth are darkened with jet paste. This pink lady is about 2 3/4" long and 1 1/4" wide, while overall necklace is about 23" long.
Jovanna is the daughter of well known carver Veronica Poblano and the granddaughter of carver Leo Poblano. Leo Poblano died in 1959 while fire-fighting, another important Zuni vocation.

We're thrilled to offer this collectible Dragonfly mosaic cuff bracelet by award-winning artist Mary C. Lovato. This magnificent piece is one of her first cuff bracelets from 2009. Overlaid on a bed of cottonwood, are many glorious pieces of turquoise, red coral, pen shell and spiny oyster shell set with borders and outlines of sterling silver. We love the square and rectangular shaped turquoise, red coral and spiny oyster cabochons, as they're nicely polished and slightly raised above the surface.
This cuff bracelet's entire inner circumference is about 6 1/4", while the opening is about 1 1/4". It's 2" wide tapering to 1 1/2", and is 1/4" thick. Signed by the artist along with her incised Corn motif.
