Handmade. Lovely elongated stylized arrowhead (a signature design) of sterling silver with Ray and Patty's fine multi-inlay. These are a little different from their usual work in that they did not include their standard sun face. Due to the jet component, they are quite lightweight. Colors are black, blue, orange and white. Ray and Claudia Gasper (see their work elsewhere on my site) introduced me to the Edaakies, very sweet people.
Ray and Patti are part of both Santa Fe Indian Market & Heard shows which means, at the very least, their work for those events has to meet some very specific standards.
Purchased directly from the artists.
Remember to check the dimensions-the photos are extreme close-ups
