Cuff, Turquoise & Coral, Vintage, Inlay

We think chip inlay is the next new wave of collectible native American jewelry.  Chip inlay uses crushed turquoise or coral stones mixed with resin to fill the recesses of the sterling silver piece.  After the inlay has hardened the piece is polished smooth.

This chip inlay bracelet features two kachina spirits crafted from turquoise and coral stones.  Additional stamp work adds to the beauty and balance of the piece.  It is hallmarked with the Ortega Shop Logo and HMIJ, which stand for Handmade Indian Jewelry.

HMIJ "Handmade Indian jewelry" refers to items that were made at a shop or collective where a number of Native American artists worked, some doing silversmithing, some preparing stones, some setting stones etc.
