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 Wild Spinach Closed Link Bracelet celebrates the wild spinach plant Cochiti potters have used to make their distinctive black paint. Designed with a stylized leaf-and-bud motif, this feminine Virgil Ortiz Wild Spinach Closed Link Bracelet reprises a design often featured in the pottery of Virgil’s grandmother and mother. Sterling silver with lobster clasp. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
This lovely Virgil Ortiz Wild Spinach Closed Link 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.
