Country music legend TANYA TUCKER wore a version of this Kirk Smith vintage concho belt when she performed “Hard Luck” on The Ellen Show with Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings! The ornate sterling silver square-frame buckle is affixed to a brown leather belt that features beautiful sterling silver butterfly spacer conchos; all adorned with smooth stones of polished bright turquoise. Absolutely gorgeous!
Made in the USA.
One-of-a-Kind. Kirk Smith, dec.
Kirk came from a well-known family of silversmiths. He began working with silver as a young boy in the 1960's in his grandfather's workshop. He made jewelry his full-time passion in 1980 when he mentored with his brother-in-law and well-known artist Harry Morgan.
Kirk’s work has won many awards and is known for its investment quality. His aesthetic has remained true to the traditional heavy silverwork of the Navajo and is noteworthy for his use of the best stones and materials.
Kirk Smith was one of the best Navajo silversmiths in recent times. He was killed by a drunk driver in 2012.
