We are thrilled to have a new selection of one of a kind inlay jewelry from world re-known Navajo artist, Jim Harrison. This top-quality, contemporary inlaid sterling silver bracelet, uses stones and silver dots to depict a Navajo Yé'ii, or supernatural being. The bracelet also features a life lines pattern. The life lines are the four triangle on the front - Emergence, Learning, Teaching and Wisdom. Please ignore the reflections seen in the photos. The bracelet is in perfect shape.
The bracelet measures 5/8 inch wide at the front, with an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-1/16 inch plus a non-adjustable 1 inch gap, and weighs about 29 grams. Jim's bracelets designed to be worn below the wrist bone.
Part of what makes Harrison different from other Native American jewelers is that he uses stones from all over the world. The lime green is varisite from Utah. The vivid green is Maw Sit Sit from Miramar or southeastern Asia. The lapis is from Afghanistan. The red is spiny oyster from the Sea of Cortez. The sleeping beauty turquoise is of course from Arizona.
The work of Jimmie Harrison is very distinctive and easily recognizable. There are few working silversmiths capable of this level of stone to stone inlay jewelry. Many people upon seeing Jim Harrison jewelry think these designs are painted. Jim Harrison creates these designs and then cuts and inlays each stone himself. “The key to being a good artist is you have to create something that no one else has done before and that separates you from the others,” Jim says.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Please ignore the reflections. Hallmarked by and purchased directly from the artist. Gift Box and Authenticity Certificate included.
