Exceptional Inlaid Buckle by Charles Loloma

Charles Loloma (1921-1991, Hopi) is widely recognized as a revolutionary Native American Indian jeweler because his innovative style was a complete departure from traditional forms.

With the evolution of his work, he attained increasing fame, and today his pieces are the most sought after of any Native jeweler.
