DescriptionHandcrafted by Native American artists, this watch draws upon the legacy of silversmithing and features handcrafted watch tips made of stamped sterling silver featuring a unique pattern which is reminiscent of a butterfly.
Known around the world for their brilliance as silversmiths, Native American artists of the Southwest make jewelry that is collected and admired for its superior craftsmanship, technical sophistication, detail and beauty. Navajo and Zuni artists were the first to learn the art and develop their own distinctive silver jewelry styles, but today talented artists are working in an impressive range of styles in every Pueblo and tribe of the Southwest. This piece is a beautiful representation of traditional artistry, and is sure to be a distinctive addition to your collection.
Watch face and stretchy band are commercially made, while the watch tips are handcrafted. Watch tips measure 1-1/4" wide with stretch band that can fit an average to large fit.
