Using the old ketoh (bow guard) design for inspiration, Robert Taylor has fashioned and formed a most unusual belt buckle. With sterling silver and accents of 14k gold, Robert has stamped and filed images of fetish bears, feather patterns, spinning life signs, and prayer fans into this amazingly detailed work of art. A hand-cut and carefully set cabochon of high-grade natural Kingman turquoise from Kingman, Arizona, captures the eye and draws you into Robert's exquisite design and creativity. Robert's polish and presentation are superb.

Robert Taylor

Robert Taylor - Silver & Goldsmith:
"Cluster, channel, leaf, inlay, casting... I've done about everything," Robert Taylor talks about his silver and goldsmithing, "There's a lot of artists that do it." And then he confides the reason he has set himself apart from other craftsmen. "I didn't really get anywhere until I decided to design my own style."
