DDB is short for Darryl Dean Begay. Remember that name. No one is hotter in Native American jewelry nowadays.
This bracelet is one of a few DDB has made in his quest to master all forms of silverwork. Here, he is working like the old timers. The masters who, one hundred years ago, had few sophisticated tools. This limited the type and style those old timers could produce.
DDB melted the silver for this bracelet, just like old days. He hammered it into a thick plate which was then rolled into a thick plate, much heavier than stock sheet. Design and decor was limited to chisels and dies, making this a classic style unknown to other silversmiths.
of significance is the powerful and precision silver blocks Darryl has hammered into the thick shank. Strong strokes with a hefty hammer and chisel. Few match the exactitude of this master old style by DDB.
Man sized and hefty. Worthy collectible. Heirloom quality.
