Details

This fantastic Native American handmade natural turquoise, jet, and coral inlay and tufa cast Sterling silver cuff bracelet was created by Navajo Dine' artist Stewart Billie. Billie shows off his skill as a lapidary (stone worker) with this fantastic bracelet. Each of the more than TWO DOZEN pieces of turquoise, jet and coral in was hand cut, shaped, and polished to fit together in what only be called an ORGANIC SETTING. It gives you a feeling that this bracelet was dug whole from the Earth. The rough nature of the tufa casting only adds to the effect. Make this brilliant bracelet a great part of your collection of fine Native American jewelry. STEWART BILLIE (Navajo Dine'; active since 2010.) Tufa Artist from Fort Wingate, New Mexico. He is known for his contemporary Stone Inlay jewelry set in tufa cast Sterling Silver with a truly organic feel. His imaginative, sculptural pieces have won awards and has propelled him as one of the great up and coming Navajo Artists. Billie is quoted: "My influences mainly come from painters like Tony Abeyta, Fritz Shoulders and Peterson Yazzie. I use the tufa stone to channel my thoughts, my feelings and love of Dine'Tah (Navajo Land) into my carvings. Every piece has a spirit, a voice! Why would you dishonor a gift from the creator in mass producing your culture and traditions? We must educate through our art."
