Master jeweler Franklin Carrillo, who is self taught, uses a variety of techniques to achieve incredible designs and textures in his labor intensive pieces. The results are well-worth the struggle, manifesting into works of art that burst with color and are rooted in the enduring patterns of Pueblo culture. Knock Dad's socks off this Father's Day by gifting him this eye-catching bolo tie featuring some of the same techniques used in creating his other jewelry works, such as stone to stone and channel inlay.
A handsome mosaic geometric pattern is presented with amazing materials like turquoise, red coral, ironwood, fossilized ivory, rosarita and spiny oyster shell. They are carved, raised and beveled like cobblestones which feel great to touch. The hand-stamped borders also feature a cut out design from overlaid sterling silver with a small square of turquoise. The collectible bolo comes with a high-quality woven black leather cord measuring about 44" in total length, including the handmade reticulated sterling silver tips which measure 1 1/2" long. The adjustable center piece slides up and down the cord, which is threaded through two silver loops on the reverse, and can be worn high or low. The magnificent inlaid center station measures about 2 5/8" long and tapers from approximately 1 5/8" to 1" wide. Signed by the artist.
