A STUNNING STATEMENT BELT BY VICTOR MOSES BEGAY.


Renowned Navajo artisan Victor Moses Begay, from the legendary Begay family, combines the classic concho belt with the outstanding art of cluster work in this breathtaking vintage belt. The traditional wide leather strap boasts a staggering 19 conchos – 9 radial, 10 butterflies – each heavily adorned with turquoise cabochons and sterling silver repousse, twist wire, and drop details. (Seriously, any one of these would be fabulous pin on its own, so all together, they’re jaw-dropping.) The belt is finished with an open-frame rectangular buckle in a complementing cluster design.  It’s timeless, classic, and collectible – what more could you want?

Victor Moses Begay (Navajo). Active since 1950s. Lapidary and silversmith. Traditional; multiple styles; inlay; needle point and cluster work.
