A rather unusual small table setting (ranging from 5 3/8 to 5 7/8 inches. Made by Marcus Lomayestewa. Very cool in that it not only comes with a ribbon that establishes the year it was made, but made even better by the fact that the judges were top notch silversmiths: the late Andy Lee Kirk of Laguna and the late Gibson Nez. $900 (TUCSON)

Below left is a bracelet from sometime in the 1930s, beautifully executed and includes the use of square twist wire. Made for a medium wrist it is just over an inch wide at the widest point.  Intriguing is the fact that the silversmith chose to set the trio of square cut turquoise on each side in a single, communal bezel rather than individual bezels. I've recently seen one other bracelet made like this and set with very similar turquoise...almost certainly both were made by the same hand. Though unsigned it matches up on any number of points with several documented pieces by the Peshlakai brothers $1275 (SANTA FE)
The buckle -obviously signed KEE- is set with turquoise from the Blue Gem Mine and we believe is post-WWII and, judging from the buckle back, 1960s despite looking much older.
