About The Sterling Guardian Kachina Bolo Tie

Mill-rolled sheet and drawn wire of sterling silver were used to fabricate the kachina body and fluted bead finial cord tips.  "Raindrops" of various sizes were smelted and soldered in place, adding to the decorative hand stamped detailing.

Headdress crown, body and skirt are bezel set with five (5) high grade, natural, halved nugget turquoise stones.  Hues range from intense deep blues to blue green with dark to light matrix.  These measure from 5/16" X 1/4" to 1/2" X 5/16" in size with depths above bezel of 3/32" to 3/16".  The eyes are bright blue and round 3/32" in diameter.
