A local “Durangatang” (what we call people who live in Durango, CO) reached out with a very special custom order. After her grandfather (who she was very close to) passed away, she inherited his uniquely beautiful & antique Zuni Bolo ties. The Zuni were some of the original creators of the very trendy “Bolo Tie” and to be able to work with these pieces from the past was an absolute honor.
And so it began! I started with carefully removing the turquoise. I cleansed the stones, allowed them to speak, designed and carefully crafted two rings and a cuff for her to rock on her wedding day.
