NAVAJO ARTIST & SILVERSMITH HARRISON BITSUI IS KNOWN FOR HIS ORNATE STERLING SILVER CAST PIECES WITH TURQUOISE. This is a combination of a cast buckle and an overlay platform base holding 5 large Turquoise stones.
The Turquoise stones set in their bezels form the outside boundaries of the overlay part of this Bitsui design. The Turquoise stones are set into 1/8 plain silver bezels which are in turn mounted in a straight line onto a 1/32 platform which overlays the front of the buckle.
The 3 long platform and the Turquoise stones extend almost as far as the entire 3 3/8 length of the cast part of the buckle. The stones end where the platform ends on each side. Cast arms of the buckle extend outward to the sides and cast loops extend top and bottom past the stones on their overlay platform. See photos for best description.Note the shadows representing the platform is best seen on the photos showing the back side of this buckle. The cast part is easily seen but look past the castings and see the shadows of the overlay platform showing through the spaces in the casting. Bits (the H looks like a conjoined J and L); Sterling.
