We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Created for the Smithsonian by award-winning Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz, this handmade Virgil Ortiz Water Leather Band Bracelet adorns a genuine leather band with a sterling silver bar incised with inverted triangles. A signature Ortiz motif, the wave pattern of this Virgil Ortiz Water Leather Band Bracelet appears to be undulating. Sterling silver bar. Three-position, snap closure leather band. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
A striking design, this Virgil Ortiz Water Leather Band 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.
