Bolo - Sterling Silver Inlaid Osprey by Dale Edaakie (Zuni)

<< Previous in Bolos Next in Bolos >>
Price: $625.00
Item Number: EAB060
In this amazing bolo tie by top inlay artist Dale Edaakie, a majestic osprey looks like it is swooping down to catch itself some dinner.  His finely detailed work shows every feather and gives this noble bird a sense of motion that makes you feel that you can hear its cry and the wind rushing under its wings.

Dale is well known for his impeccable work in a style known as overlay inlay.  He first cut the design out of an upper layer of silver that is the overlaid onto a solid lower layer.  Then he cut jet and mother of pearl to fit snugly into the cut out portions.  After that, he engraved details into the shell that give his pieces their distinction.  He learned these techniques from his parents, master inlay jewelers Dennis and Nancy Edaakie.
