Marvelous– This piece was hand made by award winning Navajo jeweler Sammie Kescoli Begay, famous not only for his exquisite design in sterling, but for his use of only the finest natural American turquoise. This incredible one of a kind bracelet exhibits an extraordinary rare gem grade natural Aztec spiderweb turquoise cabochon. Representing the very finest quality from this depleted mine, the stone contains exceptional vibrant hues of deep blue with chocolate and deep red spiderweb matrix. With a tremendous amount of skill and time given to perfect the item, Sammie created a masterpiece of the finest collector grade. The piece was made with the traditional and labor intensive ingot silversmithing technique, where the artist first melts down the silver, rolls it out and hammers it repeatedly while maintaining a certain degree of heat. Thick hand twisted ingot wire extends the length of the band and is also displayed around the bezel of the stone. Gorgeous sunburst designs radiate out from the underside of the bracelet face on either side. The completed effect is elegance at its highest degree. The piece is clearly one of Sammie’s very finest creations, awe inspiring and highly collectible.
