Calvin Martinez is consistently one of our favorite silversmiths and excels in every one of his smithing endeavors. His designs are particularly compelling, melding the tenets of Navajo Traditional Revival jewelry with his unique capacity to hybridize the traditional.
This pin is set with four ovals of natural, undyed Mediterranean red coral. This is superb coral and the impeccably detailed design elements of this pin include starred buttons, raindrops, wire scrollwork and raindrop wire.
