This is Dan Jackson’s famous Navajo basket weave design bracelet with Mediterranean Coral set in Sterling Silver. It is absolutely stunning!
Two to three rows of Mediterranean Coral heishi have been inlaid vertically across the heavy gauge silver rug inspired overlay cuff. The edge of the bracelet is Dan’s signature rug sterling silver overlay design. This design comes from the rugs his mother used to weave and consists of numerous layers of sterling silver to create the basket weave pattern. This bracelet is a heavy piece and feels great feel on the wrist.
Dan Jackson began making jewelry in 1964 as he learned silversmithing from his father. His jewelry is very traditional and elegant. It is the perfect piece to wear anywhere with anything.
Dan consistently collects awards and accolades at juried art shows, such as Santa Fe Indian Market. He has won numerous awards and ribbons at Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonial, Window Rock, Arizona Tribal Fair, the New Mexico and Arizona State Fair and the Shiprock, NM Fair.
