Inlaid Bracelet by Bryon Yellowhorse


A silver Navajo inlaid bracelet featuring colorful gemstones and depicting mountains and the night sky

Product Description

Sterling silver hand-fabricated inlaid Navajo bracelet with sugilite, lapis, turquoise, red and pink coral, jet and spiny oyster shell by Navajo artist Bryon Yellowhorse. The focal point incorporates mountains and the night sky with a crescent moon and shooting star. Bright inlaid geometric patterns fall to either side.

Jeweler Bryon Yellowhorse is known best for his colorful, detailed geometric inlays with minute hand-cut stones – often turquoise, coral, and sugilite, among others – and for “updating centuries-old techniques and producing sought-after bracelets, rings, necklaces and belt buckles,” according to Smithsonian Magazine.

Bryon was born in 1972 and grew up working in his family’s roadside jewelry stand on US89 in Cameron, Arizona, alongside his uncle, Chief Juan Yellowhorse, and his older brother, Alvin, also an acclaimed jeweler who learned silversmithing from their father, Frank Yellowstone.

“Very tiny hand-cut stones are [my] hallmark,” he notes on Instagram. Some of his pieces are inspired by a Navajo Eye Dazzler rug, while others, such as an inlaid bracelet depicting mountains under the night sky, draw on features of the natural landscape. His work is contemporary, and stunning.

Among other honors, Bryon placed second in jewelry at the Navajo Nation Fair 2013, and his work has appeared in the Museum of Northern Arizona.
