We regret that this item is not available at this time.
This handmade Virgil Ortiz Turkey Track Leather Bracelet was created for the Smithsonian by award-winning Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz. Featuring one of Virgil Ortiz’s signature motifs, a striking turkey track toggle culminates the dual leather cords of this leather bracelet. An old regalia design that has come to symbolize good luck, the clever turkey track design makes it impossible to tell the front of the foot from the back—implying “no one can track your next move.” Sterling silver toggle. Genuine leather. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
This Virgil Ortiz Turkey Track Leather Bracelet reflects the intensely graphic designs of all of Ortiz’s creations—pottery, fashion, carpets, murals, and now jewelry. Informed by traditional Cochiti motifs—especially as expressed in the pottery of his grandmother and mother who taught him their craft—the designs of Ortiz’s handmade jewelry are adaptations of Cochiti artistic techniques and traditions, which it his mission to help preserve. The work of Ortiz was featured at the Smithsonian in the exhibition Virgil Ortiz: La Renaissance Indigène at our National Museum of the American Indian-New York, The George Gustav Heye Center.
