One of our favorite bracelets in the Gallery! Its extra large size really shows off the detail on this bracelet. Marc Antia is known for his incredible heavy deep stamp work and this piece does not disappoint. The contour edge really frames the stamp design. Measuring approximately 1-1/4' in width and over 7" of silver around.Notice how the strip of 14kt. gold has a different stamp design going in different directions. A beautiful piece of jewelry.
Artist: Marc Antia: Apache and part German, artist Marc Antia is a self-taught silversmith that has being making jewelry for decades. When he isn’t masterfully working on new pieces, he travels across the United States to display his work at Native American jewelry and craft shows. One well-versed in Native American jewelry might notice that the traditional Navajo stamp style seen in Marc’s jewelry is liken to a fellow Native American artist’s work: Emerson Bill. This is no coincidence, as both artists learned the ways of their trade together. This occurred in their salad days, and they grew to be close friends. Marc’s work can be distinguished from Emerson’s by his addition of extra embellishments and flourishes in his stamp work. His classic stamping on his gold and silver jewelry makes Marc’s work wearable with just about any outfit or color scheme, let alone that it works incredibly well with other Native American handmade jewelry pieces.
