No reviews

The Simplicio family has long been revered for their talents as jewelry artisans, and this bolo and belt buckle combo attributed to Isabel Simplicio is a master class in understated intricacy. The textured sterling silver is embellished with dimensional leaf applique, centered by striking inlay images of horse head in profile crafted from mother of pearl and shell complemented by freeform nuggets of turquoise in serrated bezels. These vintage 1970s creations are timeless examples of classic craftsmanship.

Isabel Simplicio (1928 - ?; Zuni). Mosaic inlay; nuget work. Wife of Chauncey Simplicio.
