This bracelet sold by the New York-based dealer Siegelson, is a classic piece by Charles Loloma. Also a painter and sculptor, this American Indian jeweler lived between his Hopi reserve and New York. From the 1950s onward, he reinterpreted elements stemming from his Indian culture such as turquoise with gold, sculptural forms and stone mosaics. Frank Lloyd Wright was one of his big clients.
