Etkie works with Native American artisans in New Mexico to create jewelry inspired by the landscape and culture of the Southwest. St. Frank and Etkie collaborated to design this contemporary cuff based on antique Navajo rug motifs. Each piece is hand-beaded on a traditional Navajo loom. The diamond design represents the Navajo homeland surrounded by four sacred mountains. The cross signifies the deity Na'ashjéii Asdzáá or Spider Grandmother, who taught the Navajo the art of weaving and is their constant helper and benefactor. The Vallero Star - vallero meaning "of the valley" in Spanish - was adapted from Spanish weaving.
