Lee Yazzie is widely recognized as one of the masters of contemporary Navajo silver jewelry.  Along with his brother Raymond and other family members, his jewelry is currently featured at Glittering World: Navajo Jewelry of the Yazzie Family at the National Museum of the American Indian New York. (For more information on the exhibit and catalog, go to http://www.nmai.si.edu/explore/exhibitions/item/?id=890).

Lee Yazzie's jewelry rarely becomes available on the market. He makes only a very few pieces each year. We are very fortunate to have two significant works that have descended in a New York family. In excellent condition, these works are coming onto the market for the first time since they were originally sold in 1980. 

Lee Yazzie's bola exemplifies very fine and elaborate silverwork and quality turquoise. This bola has a classic Yazzie design and is easy to wear. We are offering it at a very reasonable price and urge collectors to take advantage of this opportunity.
