Antique Collection, Hyson Craig, Silver with Turquoise Inlay Cuff
This is a magnificent cuff that is full of Southwest style. Before Lonn Parker made this style famous, Navajo artist Hyson Craig experimented with the creation. It is a very technical creation that involves a hollow center, overlay design, and fascinating side cuff inlay. This bracelet is a circa 1960s piece. Hyson makes the cuff with a classic Native American inspired design down the center that has a Hopi etched texture. You will be blown away by the sides of the bracelet, because the large channels have been inlaid with an American legend. Deep blue Number Eight Turquoise fills the cuff, the variety that showcases famous golden honey spider web matrix. If you are building a collection of important Navajo art, this is definitely one you want in your collection.
