Ron Bedonie, Sterling Silver Concho Belt, Masterpiece, Navajo, Signed
Navajo artist Ron Bedonie and Perry have been discussing the idea of a belt for some time. When Ron talks about making a concho belt it seems to get him pretty excited. These are creations you don’t see everyday and especially from Ron Bedonie. When he came in with this belt he was very excited about the piece, and we were equally excited and pretty much blown away. The silver on the belt is done just like his other signature work, heavy silver with lots of filing and stamping. A very clean sunburst pattern fills the conchos, and the buckle is a classic Navajo design with a gorgeous Kingman Turquoise stone set in the center. Ron has put the pieces on a thick genuine leather belt, one capable of holding all the heavy silver. I don’t know how many belts Ron has made, but I do get the feeling they are something rare and special.
