This bracelet is 5 1/4" with a 1 1/16" gap.
Part Apache and part German, artist Marc Antia is a self-taught silversmith that has being making jewelry for decades. When he isnt masterfully working on new pieces, he travels across the United States to display his work at Native American jewelry and craft shows. Marc has created a following for his elaborate stamped jewelry.He often combines sterling silver and 14k gold to make pendants, rings, and cuffs. Despite the formality presented by his use of gold in Marcs jewelry, the durability of his pieces is apparent; upon wearing, one immediately knows this is something that can take the abuse of a daily wear. And yet, they are surprisingly lightweight. One well-versed in Native American jewelry might notice that the traditional Navajo stamp style seen in Marcs jewelry is liken to a fellow Native American artists work: Emerson Bill. This is no coincidence, as both artists learned the ways of their trade together. This occurred in their salad days, and they grew to be close friends. Marcs work can be distinguished from Emersons by his addition of extra embellishments and flourishes in his stamp work.
His classic stamping on his gold and silver jewelry make Marcs work wearable with just about any outfit or color scheme, let alone that it works incredibly well with other Native American handmade jewelry pieces. While still formal and ornate, Marcs work also reflects humility in both its function and its roots in traditional technique.
