Mathilda "Tillie" Jon is an accomplished Navajo silversmith who makes both traditional and contemporary designs. She does excellent stampwork and uses fine natural stones in her work.
Here is a very solid cuff set with five angular free-form stones of natural, untreated Kingman "Birdseye" turquoise from Arizona. This is a splendid wrap of finely-matched, stunning stones of superior quality. Tillie set these stones in smooth bezels wrapped with twist wire. Her cuff is made of hefty 12 gauge Sterling and is superbly stamped and finished with a satin finish and nice patina. The edges of the cuff are scalloped and the cuff tapers slightly to the terminals. A real eye magnet!
