Navajo artist Calvin Desson creates magic with his incredible lapidary work. Using a mix of stones including lapis, jet, turquoise, and agate, Calvin carefully cuts his stones into pictorial images representative of his great heritage. Double D Ranch is pleased to offer this micro-inlay bolo of the great warrior Crazy Horse. Set in a cutwork bezel of Sterling silver, this stunning bolo tie features a clamp back, braided leather cord, and statement-making bolo tips. We think the tips are “rock stars” in their own right!
