With this bracelet, Navajo silversmith Jimmy Poyer has elected to present a clean and simple jewelry design to set off these "precious stones." To the Navajo people, turquoise, spiny oyster, jet, and lapis lazuli are considered precious. Combined with Jimmy's elemental impressions, they are just that. Jimmy also sends a bit of a message worked into this bracelet. Within the design are silver spots to represent stars in the night sky. “Something to help us find our way through the dark,” says Jimmy with a wink and a grin.
