Harry H. Begay Large Silver Ring with Natural Turquoise Cabochon
This ring exhibits Harry H. Begay’s signature elaborate style with extensive file and stamp work, and an impressive natural turquoise cabochon set in a sawtooth bezel. Widely recognized as reviving traditional Native American silver smithing by creating pieces from ingot silver, the artist heats the ingot and anneals it prior to hammering out the desired shape and creating his designs. Harry’s work is significant and his process is extremely labor intensive, for this reason he only uses the finest turquoise available.
