Description

This is a gorgeous and heavy cuff.  It could easily be a lifestyle piece you wear every day.

It is made in heavy gauge sterling silver, which is hand cut with over lay in an intricate Navajo rug pattern. The various layers of sterling silver and the different treatments of the silver make this cuff appear to be woven. The colors of the sterling silver appear as black, gold and silver, which emphasizes the three dimensional appearance of this gorgeous cuff.

Known for his intricate “rug pattern” etching, Dan learned the silverwork from his father (John Nez Begay). The rug designs on his silver work come from his mother’s (Bernice Charlie) weavings.

 “My culture, tradition, and the Navajo way guide me,” Dan says of his jewelry making.

Dan’s jewelry is repeatedly honored at juried shows. He has won awards and ribbons at Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonial, Window Rock Tribal Fair, the NM State Fair, Arizona State Fair and the Shiprock Fair in Shiprock, NM.

Condition: Excellent- original condition – new
Provenance: Purchased from the artist.
