LEE BEGAY, Navajo Dine’, is fast becoming notable in the turquoise jewelry world. Lee pours molten silver into TUFA molds, each handcaved with precision. He even carves his initials (Hallmark) into the reverse, including the year.
His innovative designs are unerring and original. And, because each carved mold self destructs, his work is one-of-a-kind. If he wanted to, Lee could single handedly thumb his nose at those who try to replicate his original works!
This fabulous bola is Lee’s latest Tufa creation. And it’s a beauty. Bold and hefty, featuring a fabulous 1960s synthesized turquoise gemstone, true BISBEE BLUE with fortified chocolate SPIDERWEB matrix. The shield-shaped Sterling KETOH has a figure eight keeper hosting a top grade handwoven lariat. Modern era barrel tips with natural turquoise tips.
