Well known Zuni jewelry artist, Robert Leekya, is the designer of this fabulous bolo tie. Using the most exquisite Sleeping Beauty turquoise, he has fashioned a classic style bolo tie. The teardrop shaped stones are set in sterling silver and enhanced with twist trim and beads. The bolo is 3" by 3 1/16" and weighs a substantial 103 grams. The squash blossom shaped tips are silver and measure 3 ½" long. The black braid leather is 48" if stretched out, however, it measures 24" as pictured. The leather is flat and smooth behind the next for comfort.
Robert Leekya, deceased, often worked with his wife Bernice and the signature, RLB, on the back of this piece reflects their collaboration. Here is a chance to own a piece of history from one of the best Zuni artisans.
