MRC01 - Michael Roanhorse Crawford, Navajo/Dine,
sterling silver and
We absolutely love Michael Roanhorse Crawford’s couture jewelry. We acquired this piece when Michael was transitioning into new territory by adding more dimensionality to his pieces. This cuff bracelet with its focal teardrop of Lone Mountain turquoise, fabled for holding its brilliant blue without fading, takes Navajo symbolism into avant garde realms. Michael's innovative blend of Navajo tradition with abstract modernism won his entry first place in the Avant Garde category at the 49th Annual Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market. Since then, Michael has gone on to win awards and critical acclaim at other major shows. We expect Michael's work to keep him at the forefront of the Native American jewelry scene.
