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 a sprinting deer amid desert flora and fauna and is crafted from turquoise and coral stones. Additional stamp work adds to the beauty and balance of the piece.
