Freddy Maloney and his brothers Leonard and Arnold make classic Navajo Traditional Revival pieces, including rings, bracelets, pins and pendants.
This ring is decorated by deep stampwork and appliquées. Freddy brushed this with steel wool and oxidized it so that the deep stampwork contrasts nicely with the matte finish and heightens the visual sense of texture. He set an oval stone of natural, untreated Sleeping Beauty turquoise in the smooth bezel wrapped with twisted square wire.
Hallmarked with a horseshoe and stamped "Sterling" inside the shank.
Stone: 3/8" x 1/4"
Width of shank in front: 13/16"
Width of shank in back: 1/2"
