Johnny Mike Begay Silver Belt Buckle with Turquoise Cabochon Center Stone
Kenneth Begay was a noted Navajo jeweler who worked at the White Hogan Gallery at Scottsdale. He brought in his brother, Johnny Mike, to work with him. Kenneth is credited with inventing rail bracelets of all types, but it was Johnny Mike who expanded this style. This belt buckle is strongly geometric in design, enhanced by the Greek key design and the turquoise cabochon at the center.
Johnny Mike Begay passed away in 1976.
