by The Good Collective

  • $670.00

Chip inlay is a method where cavities in jewelry are filled with a mixture of crushed stone, typically turquoise and coral, and epoxy resin. The piece is then polished smooth after the resin has hardened. This method was developed in the 1970's by a Navajo silversmith. The origin of this piece is unknown but it is from a collection that was inventoried in the '70's.  There is no artist mark on this piece.
