Native American Navajo Turquoise Sterling Silver Sand Cast Belt Buckle Signed
Southwestern Native American Indian turquoise, Sterling silver sand cast belt buckle, signed RANDY BOYD inside a spur by the Navajo artist. Randy has been crafting jewelry for over twenty years. His silversmithing career started in his teenage years, he was about 16 years old. He initially worked under the skillful supervision of renowned master silversmith Ray Tracey, whose sophistication inspired Randy's style. Randy has worked for several traders, but at Stoneweaver workshop he developed a more traditional Navajo design for his pieces, with turquoise and heavy-gauge Sterling silver.
Randy is now recognized as a classic Navajo artisan, partial to high-grade stones and thicker silver work. For this stunning buckle, Randy selected a spectacular dark aqua-teal colored turquoise with a copper tone spiderweb matrix. The nicely polished cabochon was set in a smooth bezel wrapped in twisted wire and placed in the center of the buckle. The cut-out sand cast buckle has beautiful stamp and file work all around, and a very elegant uniform patina. This gorgeous piece weighs just over 40.
