Details

This fantastic Native American handmade multi-stone inlay and Sterling silver bracelet was created by Hopi / Pima artists, Bennard and Frances Dallasvuyaoma. The Dallasvuyaoma's use various stones and shells including turquoise, spiny oyster, blue lapis, and many others to create a stylized image of a mesa on Hopi lands. The silver is Tufa Cast giving it weight and strength. Bennard was trained by his uncle, the renowned Hopi artist Charles Loloma, whose influence you can clearly see in the pieces he creates. Bennard & Frances Dallasvuyaoma are a husband and wife team who have retired from their careers as a teacher and attorney-at-law, respectively to one of their first loves, making wonderful high quality jewelry.
