By the Seventies, many Pueblo silversmiths had fully equipped work benches. Working in a Pueblo home has huge advantages. Contrary to Navajo, who must travel many miles to buyers and dealers, the Pueblo silversmiths enjoy buyers who come to them. This small advantage gives more time to develop skills and techniques.
This bracelet, for instance, carries a slight concave in its shank. This produces a unique reflection pattern. A classic by a very good silversmith, ca.1980, noted in all of Bille Hougart’s Classic hallmark books.
