Horace Iule Sandcast Silver Bolo Tie with Abstract Cluster of Natural Turquoise on Braided Leather
Specifically know for his expressive cross pendants, this sandcast silver bolo tie with abstract cluster of natural turquoise stones on braided leather exhibits the lively aesthetic of coveted Zuni silversmith, Horace Iule. The radiant blue stones are set in minimal sawtooth bezels and framed within a lusciously organic composition. Understated stampwork and silver beads on the tapered tips give this piece a highly finished look and sophisticated appeal.
Horace Iule was a third generation Zuni artist begining his work as a silversmith in the 1930’s after returning from school in Phoenix where he had studied blacksmithing. Horace learned silversmithing from his father and eventually became an expert of the casting method. He was one of the first Zuni to create the Knifewing god in silver.
