Not quite forty years old, Harrison Jim is an accomplished silversmith who works in many styles but favors the classic designs best described as Navajo Traditional Revival. His work is done in the old-fashioned way by melting silver, rolling it out and hammering it to form his pieces. His work is very often decorated by free-hand cold chisel work, a technique more common to an earlier era of Navajo smithing which requires great practice and skill.
This ring is set with a soft-cornered triangle of natural, untreated Kingman turquoise in a handmade, notched bezel. Decorative cold chisel work marks the shank. The shank tapers gently to a narrower width at the back of the shank. A splendid blue stone cut by Harrison!
Hallmarked by a jeweler's scribe on the back as "HJIM" (where the "H" is above the "J" in "JIM").
Stone: 5/8" x 9/16"
Width of shank in front: 15/16"
