What an outstanding work of art! I do not even know how to begin to describe this beauty. Made by Navajo artist Derrick Gordon who was born in Gallup NM. He began his silversmith carrier by helping his uncle renowned Delbert Gordon who became his mentor and teacher. Now Derrick has made a name for himself with his heavy intricate silver work and top grade stones. For this piece Derrick used a heavy sterling sheet metal for the base and stamped an intricate design into what was to become the back or inside of the bracelet. Then he overlaid the entire bracelet with one hand made embellishment after another. Finally he set a long coral stone in the center crowning off the bracelet with a splash of fire red.
Truly this piece is a work of art and will make a wonderful addition to any Native American collection that can be passed down from generation to generation.
