This marvelous one of a kind piece is set with magnificent rare high grade natural Carico Lake spiderweb turquoise and was created by award winning Navajo artist, Ned Nez. The specimen is an eye-dazzling deep green with dark chocolate-brown matrix. This exceptional work of art features a labor intensive hand chiseled fluted bezel encircling the stone accompanied by exceptional detail. Exquisite silver work unique to the artist is displayed on the exterior and interior of the piece with incredible skill. Ned is famous not only for his use of the finest natural American turquoise, but for his technique in creating items that are uncommon in today's market. We have the great privilege of representing Ned Nez with this piece on page 88 of Dr. Gregory Schaff's definitive new book American Indian Jewelry III: M-Z 2,100 Artist Biographies.
