Richard Salley | The Ketoh Bracelet with Box Clasp | Wednesday, February 6 and Thursday, February 7, 2019 | 9 am until 4 pm


Navajo Indian archers wore wrist guards called Ketohs to protect their forearms from the snap of their bowstrings. Navajo silversmiths adapted the ketohBo form into decorative jewelry. Taking inspiration from the original Ketoh, this 2-day workshop will guide you in the fabrication of a modern, hinged version with box clasp that you’ll be proud to wear even if you never pull back a bowstring.
