Bolo, Kachina, Knifewing, Turquoise, Needlepoint, Hallmark, Vintage Mid 20th Century, 1352

Size Guide

This beautiful bolo is a vintage creation by Zuni husband-and-wife duo Hugh & Agnes Bowkaty. The striking slide is a detailed depiction of a knifewing kachina crafted from delicate and intricate needlepoint turquoise stones and sterling silver accents. The cord is a classic black braided leather tipped with sterling silver aiguillettes that feature smaller matching figurines. Really impressive intricacy!

Product Disclaimers



In the absence of a specific assertion or certification to the contrary, Double D Ranch does not warrant, represent, or suggest that any particular item or product which is sold or offered for sale by Double D Ranch in any forum or venue of sale is created or produced by any Indian or Indian Tribe, is an Indian product, or was created by any Indian arts and crafts organization as such terms are defined by the laws of the United States, or the laws of any other jurisdiction, including without limitation, the Indian Arts and Crafts Act and rules set forth by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board.

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
