You may have noticed that we carry a lot of David Rosales jewelry. in fact, his work is our most popular line of Native American jewelry. While his designs are always impressive, occasionally one comes along that is truly special. This bracelet is one of those pieces that really stand out from the crowd. Let's talk a closer look at this bracelet!
One thing that David Rosales is famous for is his beautiful color collections that any of his designs can be inlaid with. This is the Red Moon Collection and it is made up of red and blue lab-created opal, a little bit of turquoise, and black jade. The black jade acts as a dark background that provides great contrast for the other bright stones. Look closely and you will see all of the tiny little cuts that make up this inlay work. These Native American jewelry artists actually hand-cut and inlay all of these stones together. It is a skill that requires a lot of time and precision and can take years to master. David Rosales' Navajo artists are some of the very best at this skill and it shows through in their work.
Normally when I post David Rosales jewelry I mostly discuss the inlay work. However, this bracelet has a whole other element that makes it even better. The silverwork is really fantastic in this piece and totally different from anything that I have seen before. The cuff has petroglyphs, which are ancient rock carvings like you might find in Mesa Verde, Colorado. Some of this rock art may have been made more than 1500 years ago and is still visible today. This bracelet combines ancient Native American art with modern techniques and styling. David Rosales is truly one of the most creative and progressive jewelry designers!
This bracelet is quite large and solid. Due to its size, it may suit a man more than a woman. It is a fantastic piece of artwork that I hope is appreciated for its beauty, detail, and craftsmanship.
