Master Navajo jeweler Michael Perry has created one of the finest bolos imaginable using lapidary and silver smithing skills that reach the peak of jewelry art. The traditional ketoh design has been modified to incorporate raised and flat inlay and a gem grade spiderweb turquoise, adding contemporary elegance to this stunning piece. The rare gem grade natural Mediterranean oxblood coral surrounds the edges of the interior overlay rug pattern design as well as the sides of the piece. Precision cut coral cabochons accent the design within sunbursts. The turquoise is rare gem grade natural Carico Lake spiderweb with a dark blue-green background and chocolate webbing. The sliders and tips are inlayed to match with a wonderful large beaded design at the ends. We have the great privilege of representing Michael Perry with this piece on page 126 of Dr. Gregory Schaff's definitive new book American Indian Jewelry III: M-Z 2,100 Artist Biographies.
