Dan Simplicio Sterling Silver Cuff Links with Natural Turquoise in Organic Composition
These handsome sterling silver cuff links with natural turquoise in organic composition by talented artist Dan Simplicio are a transparent example of his accomplished style. Capturing rich blue stones in a haze of naturalism, Simplicio exhibits fluidity within the silverwork and accentuates this movement with simple stamped texture and raindrop beads.
Dan Simplicio learned the art of silversmithing from his uncle, Juan Dedios and worked at C.G. Wallace’s trading post at Zuni with master stone cutters Leeyka Deyuse and Leo Poblano. Simplicio was the first to use branch coral in its natural form, and one of the first Zuni artisans to use gold. His impeccable silver work symbolizes organic forms and decorated naturalism.
