Description
 
This unique bolo tie is set with a Natural Bisbee turquoise cabochon. This bolo tie offers the best of Simplicio's inlay work, with his beautiful inlaid horse and it's detailed bridle of silver. It also features his stamped leafs and distinct stamp sun rays. Beautifully crafted tips add the final touch to this bolo. It measures 1 7/8" long by 1 3/8" wide tapering to 1 1/16". The tips measure 2" long. The length of the leather straps are 19" long. No signatures or makers mark but definitely the work of Dan Simplicio.

Both Chauncey (Brother) Isabelle (Chauncey's wife) and Mike (son) also did inlaid horse figures.


Simplicio was the first to use branch coral in its natural form and the first to set rough-cut coral nuggets on rings. He was presumably the first Zuni artist to utilize gold in jewelry as early as 1931. He introduced extensive use of leaf work in Zuni jewelry. Simplicio's jewelry has a highly individual look, resulting from its distinctive use of deep red branch coral with beautiful quality turquoise. Silver leaf work and unique stamping add texture and detail, creating a delicate counterpoint to the heavier turquoise and branch coral designs.
