Known for his intricate maiden pieces, Navajo silversmith Bennie Ration creates pieces featuring stone and sterling silver, such as this incredible bolo tie featuring a traditional Sunface. The piece showcases a green turquoise stone comprising the majority of the body, set in a simple sterling silver bezel stamped with vertical lines along the outer edges, and surrounded by a sterling silver rope pattern at the base. This, in turn, is surrounded by a sterling band stamped and cut out to form a pattern, as well as appliqued toward the top on each side with a row of small sterling dots. Protruding from the top of the turquoise piece is a detailed sterling silver Sunface, showcases a round head with deeply grooved rectangular eyes and a round, appliqued mouth. Vertical and horizontal lines are stamped along the forehead, and the entire face is surrounded by a circle of individual sterling feathers soldered together, stamped delicately with fine lines. Sterling silver tips are stamped with scallop designs at the top. Bolo measures 22″ from top to bottom. Sunface measures 2 1/2″ long x 1 3/8″ wide.
