Thomas Curtis Wide Heavy Gauge Cuff with Deeply Embedded Precision Stampwork
Celebrated artist Thomas Curtis created this impeccable sterling silver heavy weight cuff ornamented with deeply embedded precision stampwork. Strategically placed chiseled lines accent the elaborate traditional motifs and secure the energetic composition within a subtle frame. With the same level of proficiency, Curtis decorated both sides of the thick gauged silver allowing smooth transition of movement around the entire piece. A handsome cuff with a considerable weight, this piece has never before been owned and is immaculate condition.
Thomas Curtis was an award winning, self-taught Navajo Silversmith; a master who pursued his art for over 50years. He is best known and loved for his painstakingly beautiful handcrafted precision stamp work in heavy-gauge silver creating sophistically stimulating jewelry. Born in 1945 into a family of skilled silversmiths, Curtis observed the secrets of his family’s finely crafted silver work and began creating traditional Navajo jewelry by the age of 12.
