Collectors from around the world would make their way onto the Navajo Reservation looking for silversmith Orville Tsinnie. The late artist worked his shop in Shiprock and would welcome who ever made the journey. They were drawn to his traditional silver and stone designs. He has a way of turning traditional silver into a trendy piece of handmade jewelry. This bracelet is made with his signature heavy triangle wire border. You will find the silver holding five incredible pieces of Morenci Turquoise. These dark blue Arizona rocks hosts that legendary iron pyrite matrix. One of the stones has a crack, hopefully it holds together. It can be common in bracelets that have age and worn daily. If you own other Tsinnie jewelry you know how much you love it, and if you don’t it is time to learn why people traveled to Shiprock for their silver fix.
