    Thanks Greg. I have one nice pair of boots and I wear them too infrequently.

    Wearing a couple of things today that show some masterful stamping. Both have been shared in better detail further back in this thread.

    Navajo craftsman Chester Benally channel inlay ranger buckle set. I'm not sure about this much belt jewelry for myself. I sure like it on the desktop. We'll see when I put it on one of my belts.

    Nice work. I have a similar reaction to lapidary pieces - admire the design and workmanship but find I don't wear them very much. I have a massive Zuni bolo tie that I think I have worn out of the house on one occasion.

    That's a beautiful piece! I've been eyeing some of Mr. Delbert Gordon's belt buckles myself.

  14. Very nice Alan! My Mother-in-Law had this larger-sized one. Sadly it's rolled up in a closet as we haven't found the wall space for it.

    A few things I haven't posted before.

    Coin silver squash blossom necklace c.1920s, heavy (200+grams) and well crafted - not made for the tourist market. Tufa cast naja with horses hooves. Purchased by the seller out of pawn at Toadlena trading post in the 1960s.
