Please check back soon! We’re moving to a new warehouse.
This stunning Virgil Ortiz Water Bangle Bracelet is incised with alternating triangles and inverted triangles, creating a motif that appears to undulate like waves of water – a signature motif of award-winning Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz. This handmade bracelet was designed for the Smithsonian. Sterling silver. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
This striking Virgil Ortiz Water Bangle 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.
