Raymond Betsoi-Beautiful Navajo Silver-Cut Out Concho
Talented Navajo smith Raymond Betsoi can make many different styles of handmade jewelry. Usually we see him with his row bracelets made with little snake eye turquoise stones, just like the Zuni. We all were amazed the day he showed up with this amazing traditional center cutout concho belt. You will find many early Navajo belts made in the same way because you do not have to use solder, instead the center of the concho is cut out and the leather weaved through it. Raymond has decorated each piece with a simple stamp pattern and designed them with a scalloped edge. The silver is given an antique look that compliments the style perfectly. If you have ever wanted to own a magnificent piece of handmade wearable Navajo art, then consider this belt.
