From time-to-time,  the Ugly Otter (and his Beautiful Wife) find, or purchase, items that are very special for one reason or another.  Many of these "Featured Items" do not fit in a normal category, so it would not be wise to put them on a page where they do not belong.  Therefore, we have created this page especially for these items.  They may be very unusual items, very hard to find items, or things that just would not be noticed as "special" if displayed along with other merchandise.  While almost all of our jewelry shown on our web site are one-of-a-kind items, these articles have been custom made, or are unique in some other way.  So, look, enjoy, and if the mood fits, order!

A closer look at #U92B-1909

Featured Item
A side view of #U92B-1909

This is a sterling silver statue, on a nice sterling base.  This figure represents the Kachina "Morning Singer".  The turquoise is fine Kingman turquoise.  This was made by a fine Silversmith who passed away in July, 2014. This is one-of-a-kind item, and there will be no more made like it. It was made by the famous Navajo Silversmith, Betty Bitsie and she used her husband's hallmark stamp of BB on the bottom of the figure.  (This we believe is one of three earlier pieces which has some patina on it and which some customers really like so we didn't remove it, however it will shine up if you choose to do so.) The Item number is U92B-1909 and sells for (Sold) $495

Featured Item
  Close-up of head area of #92B-1587

All about  #R11-1587.   This intricately carved American Eagle is carved from one single block of wood, even including the base.  There is no glue, no patch, no cracks, no splits - nothing added.  In fact, it is not even coated with anything - just raw wood.  No, we don't know what kind of wood.  We don't know who the artist is who made it, but we have reason to believe it was carved by a Native American.  The carving is 16" tall, and appears to be quite old, and we cannot find a flaw anywhere on it.  This was purchased at an estate sale which was predominately made up of excellent pieces of Native American art.  When ordering, specify "Item #92B-1587." The price is (On layaway) $350 plus shipping which is $10 per order.  It can be put on lay-away for $112.

Another view of #R11-1529, just for perspective, to appreciate the size of this bracelet.

(Shown here, and the three photos above)

Here are five views of the largest turquoise bracelet we have seen, anywhere.  The turquoise stone alone measures 4" X 2-1/8" and is about 5/8" thick.   This is one single turquoise stone with a carved pattern, it is not an inlay work of many separate stones.  Of course it is mounted in sterling silver, and will fit a 7-1/4" wrist.  The wrist size could be made some larger, or smaller, but would require a trip to the Native American silversmiths to have that work done.   We do not know the maker, nor do we know if it is new or old pawn.  I suspect it is old pawn, however.  The Ugly Otter (and his Beautiful Wife) stumbled upon this remarkable bracelet on one of our recent buying trips.   The Item number is R11-1529 and sells for  (Sold) $1875.  It can be put on lay-away for as little as $375.

Featured Item
#U92B-41892 (Only the one on the left side in this photo is for sale)

#U92B-41892.   The bolo tie on the right (in the photo to the left) is one the Ugly Otter purchased decades ago from the Bankruptcy Court in Albuquerque, NM., and it's not for sale.    We are showing both of these for comparison purposes.  It's maker was a Navajo by the name of "Jerry Roan".  It is estimated that it was twenty to thirty years old when the Otter purchased it.   He has worn it for decades, and received so many offers to buy it, that he finally commissioned a Native American Silversmith to make another one for us.  The Otter's is not for sale.  It is only shown here so you can compare the two.

The one to the left of Ugly Otter's bolo tie (and in the photo to the right) was made by a Navajo lady silversmith named Betta Lee, at the request of the Ugly Otter.  (The Ugly Otter had to leave his Bolo Tie for several months to be used as a pattern for Ms Lee.  And, he missed  not wearing it!)   (In the picture on the left screen) The one that is for sale on the left measures 7-1/2" tall and are 3-1/2" wide.  The Ugly Otter's (to the right of it) measures 7-1/8" tall and is 3-1/2" wide,  The stones on the one for sale are Pilot Mountain Turquoise & Coral, As you can see, it is not an exact duplicate, but it is close!  It is all sterling silver, and the bolo cord is woven brown leather and is 8mm in diameter.  The Kachina it represents is the "Morning Singer".  We are told that the Morning Singer's job is to go through the Pueblo early in the morning singing the news of the night.  He is also responsible to notice any hungry children who are not being fed, and see to it that they get something to eat.   The price on this bolo tie, $2700, The item number is U92B-1916.  It can be put on lay-away for only $540.

#U18-1504, shown above is a great Squash Blossom necklace set.   The Necklace measures 42" long, and was made by "G.
