Z Kenneth Bitsie & Clayton Tom- Navajo
Pendant - Walking Fan
Onyx, Turquoise (2), Jasper, & Opal
Sterling Silver

Kenneth Bitsie (silversmith), Clayton Tom (micro-inlay), Navajo  

Beautiful pendant with unique design. There is a lot going on in this piece and it shimmers from the opal. The attention to detail is staggering and consistent. I like looking at it under a magnifying glass to see the nuances.

Any "cloudiness" are reflections, the "legs" are much more representative of the appearance.  This was a rush post for by customer request, if it is still here, I will try to get better photos this weekend.

Kenneth is one of the long time members of the consortium of artists that comprises Stoneweaver. Unlike most inlay shops (Supersmith, as an example), the Stoneweaver silverwork is handmade not cast. I carry Supersmith, so this is not a slam, just a fact.

Clayton Tom is an award winning jewelry-maker and one of the premier micro-inlay artists in Native American work. Don't ask me why the silversmith is the one who signs the work, I've never really understood or agreed with it.  I think BOTH should sign, but nobody asked me.


I have other micro-inlay work by the team of Kenneth Bitsie & Clayton Tom and other work by Sylvana Apache and Supersmith.
