WES WIL­LIE (NAVAJO)

Native American Art - - GUIDE TO MARKET -

Wes Wil­lie’s bolo tie and bracelet, which won top jew­elry hon­ors at the 2017 In­dian Mar­ket, are ex­quis­ite rep­re­sen­ta­tions of what the Navajo artist is known for: bold use of stones, in­tri­cate de­signs, and mar­velous ma­te­ri­als se­lec­tion, from turquoise with gor­geous ma­trix pat­terns to corals in deep oxblood reds. “Each new piece is an op­por­tu­nity,” he says. “And I hope to high­light these amaz­ing stones ev­ery chance I get.”
