Copper Anticlastic Cuff with Golden Yellow Enamel
Reddish copper peaks out from beneath a flash of golden yellow enamel in this hand-hammered anticlastic copper cuff. Very smooth on the inside of the bracelet for a comfortable fit. The copper along the outer surface/exposed curve is left raw, so that as time goes by it will deepen with color, making this an ever-evolving piece.
The cuff is approximately an inch wide, the curve rising about a quarter inch. One-of-a-kind. Signed on the back.
Turquoise Tear Drop Bead
Monsoon season is upon us in the southwest – there is nothing like the smell of rain in the desert. Wear this bead as a reminder of the beauty of the storms as they sweep across the big open sky — a talisman for the world’s most precious resource — water!
Married Metals Tie Clip
This piece is made of hand-hammered brushed copper and brushed silver. The metals pick up light with a soft glow. The design on this piece reminds me of the southwestern mountain landscape where I grew up.
The clip is 1 1/2 inches long by 1/4 inch wide. Signed on the back.
the Southwest Indian Art Fair began in 1993 as a small pottery fair. Since then, it has grown to be the highlight of Arizona State Museum’s annual educational and cultural celebrations, as well as a highly anticipated feature of Tucson’s winter festival calendar. SWIAF, like all the museum’s events, promotes respect for and understanding of the region’s vibrant and diverse Native cultures. Your support of this event helps us support Native artists.
