EYE CATCHING AND ELEGANT

Turquoise clusters are a traditional style that always make a statement. Jack Weekoty has done fabulous work in his life and this belt and buckle is one of those great pieces. The black floral tooled leather belt is the perfect pair to the eye-catching buckle. A large cluster of  petite point turquoise stones which are accented with sterling silver rope and bar details creating a gorgeous statement. A belt like this would be a wonderful addition to any collection.

Jack Weekoty (also spelled Weekooty) was a Zuni lapidarist born in 1916.  He was taught the laborious skill of hand-cut gemstones by the legendary Zuni lapidarist, Horace Iule and produced jewelry from 1945 to 1975. Jack specialized in channel inlay as well as traditional cluster work.
