This sterling silver bolo tie carries the bear print mark of Hopi silversmith Riley Polequaptewa, who started making jewelry in the middle 1970's. He uses a stamp like this to identify his work because he's a member of the Bear clan of the Hopis. It was made using the overlay method, and has the fine chisel marks in the recessed areas that are a characteristic of jewelry made by members of this tribe. This tie is in very good condition, with a smooth finish, a thick black leather cord with modernist sterling tips, and with no damage or problems to any of its parts.

The centerpiece of this bolo measures 2 1/4 inches tall by 1 3/8 inches at its widest point, and the cord is 34 inches long, not including the tips, which are each 2 1/2 inches long. These measurements and its striking abstract design make this piece suitable to be worn by a man or a woman, and its high quality makes it a tie that any bolo lover would be glad to add to their collection.

I have a few Hopi bolo ties like this one in my shop, each made by a different silversmith, and you can see them all by selecting the Native American category.
