One of the greatest shows in the history of Indian jewelry! VICTOR MOSES BEGAY. If there ever was a cutting edge silversmith it was VICTOR MOSES BEGAY.
Victor mastered all forms of typical Indian jewelry and even “invented Chip Inlay.” He could make silver objects in every shape and form.
Now passed, VMB left a huge legacy. This pin is one of them. His hallmark commands respect and value. With a heavier base plate and NATURAL turquoise lapidary, NEEDLEPOINT! Victor no doubt cut these stones but left the grunt work of sawing and soldering to his family. VMB!
Circa early Seventies. Good condition.
