Bolo, Cluster, Turquoise, Hallmark, Vintage, 1030
A bolo is a bold way to add a little awesome to your outfit!
This big vintage beauty is the craftsmanship of renowned Navajo jewelry artisan Randy Hoskie, who has been active on the scene since the 1980s and is best known for his bold bracelets and bolos. Certainly a statement piece, the 3” x 3.5” oval shield features two dozen matrixed blue turquoise nuggets set in tiny serrated bezels and interspersed with sterling silver drops, framed by twist wire detailing with a stamped sterling silver rim. The cord is a classic braided leather tipped with sterling silver aiguillettes. Remarkably, this is “new old stock” that has never been worn!
