Francis Jones Sterling Silver Money Clip

This money clip by Francis Jones has 8 sterling silver "tracks" that have been polished and accented with oxidized channels to create the striking contrast.

Francis is an award winning Navajo artist and has been working in silver since the age of 14. She learned the art of silversmithing from her father, a fourth generation silversmith. Her family was among the first to do sand casting. She has combined that skill with her “track” styles, to develop the method she is famous for today. She has won several awards for her execution of fine casting, done the way her ancestors did it long ago.  When not making jewelry, Francis is raising her grandchildren and still tends her sheep daily.
