Precision silversmith Leonard Nez has created this incredible bolo tie by overlaying five sheets of sterling silver each finely stamped in his signature feather design. Reminiscent of the detail covering the wonderful old pots of Santa Clara Pueblo, Leonard's artistry is unique. The rare gem grade natural turquoise set in the bolo is featured on page nine of Gregory Schaff's definitive new book American Indian Jewelry 2: A-L 1800 Artist Biographies. The gem is amongst the finest the Candelaria turquoise mine ever produced. The hue is electric deep blue with reddish-brown matrix and this mine is now closed and believed depleted.
