One of a Kind

Reimagined Components: This is a vintage indigenous American multi-stone bolo slide wearing a headdress of feathers. This bolo contains turquoise, mother of pearl, and red coral with black enamel. It was thoroughly cleaned, polished, and sealed, and strung on a new leather cord paired with salvaged silver bullet bolo tips from a different, well loved bolo cord. It has a total length of 34". 

Components Found in: Quartzsite AZ

~Bolo~

There are documented cases of Native American men wearing bandanas around their neck, held together by earthen objects like Shells in the 1930s. However, other sources give an Arizona silversmith the credit with devising the bolo tie after being praised on the tie from hat strings around his neck.

 ~Turquoise~

For thousands of years, turquoise has been prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility, and immortality. In many Native American cultures, it represents the great spirit in the sky and is often referred to as the Sky Stone. It’s believed that if a crack forms in the stone, it has taken the injury for its wearer.

~Mother of Pearl~

The iridescent lining of a sea mollusk, it is said to bring about prosperity, heighten intuition and imagination.

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection. 

~Red Coral~

The gorgeous shell of the ocean-dwelling red coral is known to help promote transformation and a feeling of deep well-being.
