This significant sterling silver cobble style inlay cuff bracelet is a masterpiece by Lloyd Tsalabutie, father of the late great carver Jeffery Tsalabutie (d). Carving only occasionally, Lloyd is more well-known as a jeweler. He is one of a few Zuni jewelers doing this gorgeous style of meticulous stone work.
Using all natural stones, Lloyd has formed six Zuni Sunface designs, inlaid stone to stone in various combinations of either turquoise, red coral, sugilite, opal, lapis and jet. The Zuni Sunface symbol represents the elements in balance.
This cuff bracelet is about is 3/4" wide. The entire inner circumference is about 5 1/2" including opening of 1 1/8". Lloyd's signature is to incise a depiction of sacred 'Dowa Yalanne' or Corn Mountain located in Zuni, on the underside of his works, as seen on this magnificent work.
The most delicious fresh water blister pearl, pink opal and variscite beads are strung with an ethereal mother-of-pearl maiden. The shapes of these beads are very captivating. Her happy facial features are incised and darkened with jet paste, and she wears a stunning inlaid rhodonite cabochon. The delightful maiden herself is about 2 1/4" long, while the necklace's overall length is approximately 24", by Jovanna Poblano.
Jovanna comes from a long line of important Zuni carvers. Her grandfather was iconic artist Leo Poblano (d) and her mother is carver Veronica Poblano. A gorgeous and refreshing maiden necklace to always wear and cherish.
