Eva & Linberg Billah Navajo Fish Scale Turquoise and Silver Belt Buckle. Signed with hallmark ELB. Classic pattern executed by many artisit's of manty tribes, this buckle is in perfect vintage condition and is approximately 3" wide by 1.75" tall. Ranges on the turquoise stonework color is from turquoise to super turquoise, and the result is a stunning work of native American jewelry Art.

Although the channel inlay style of jewelry is usually associated with Zuni artists, frequently talented Navajo jewelers have used the style. This buckle is a style referred to as “fish scale” channel inlay because the delicately cut and shaped pieces of stone resemble the shape of fish scales. This is a difficult method to use because each stone needs to be cut exactly to fit in the pre-shaped sterling silver channels.
