Description
 

Victor Coochwytewa was one of three Native American elders chosen as Arizona Indian Living Treasures at the seventh annual AILTA award ceremony held in Phoenix in September 1994. This recognition is but one of the many accolades bestowed upon the Master Hopi Jeweler in a career spanning more than half a century. Decorated World War II Veteran (1922-2011). Victor retired from Hopi Silversmithing and his beloved farming in 2006. He continued living with his family at Hopi. Victor passed away at the age of 89 on July 3, 2011. An accomplished master Hopi jeweler and a humble man. Victor's work is not only amazing but highly collectable.

This lovely hummingbird bolo displays the fine detail work found with all of Victors overlay designs. A soft patina graces the entire bolo. Set with a single high grade Morenci turquoise stone. Crafted with the double bar back and braided leather.
Hallmark with Victors (Rain Cloud).
