Description

Alex’s signature designs are his petroglyphs, which are a wonderful blend of contemporary and traditional elements. Alex works in heavy gauge sterling and selects special stones, usually turquoise. He carefully works the turquoise stones into his petroglyph patterns creating an asymmetrical, but balanced placement.  Alex has developed a flair for unique combinations of design and color. To create his works of art, he first puts a layer of silver dust on the sterling silver base that gives the piece a nice textured finish adding a depth to the petroglyphs.

Inspired by the red rock petroglyph walls of the Four Corners area, this ring has a healing hand, a dragonfly, crosses and creation symbols which are used to enhance and accent this beautiful rectangular shaped ring.  In addition, Alex has included a spectacular piece of Kingman turquoise which sits in the lower section. Alex has filled the back of the ring with rows of stamp designs with beautiful traditional bear stamps. This is truly a stunning piece of jewelry.

Creativity and perfection are the trademarks of Alex’s work. When you wear a piece of his jewelry, you can feel the artistry and the unique design that make the piece truly wearable art.
