Andy Cadman turquoise and silver concho belt


This sterling silver concho belt was handcrafted by Navajo silversmith Andy Cadman. Vibrant turquoise stones are set in each concho (12 conchos in total), and along the buckle. Leather belt can be cut to best fit the wearer. Stamped "A Cadman" and "sterling" on underside of buckle.

Leather belt measures 49" long. Each concho measures 2 1/4" wide by 1 1/2" tall and features 9 stones. Buckle measures 2 1/2" wide by 2" tall and features 12 stones. Turquoise stones range from 1/8" to 3/8" in diameter.

Maker Story: Navajo silversmith Andy Cadman was born in Gallup, New Mexico, in 1966. Cadman comes from a family of well-known silversmiths, and his work features stamped designs in sterling silver and skillfully set natural turquoise. We are proud to exhibit his works alongside the pieces from our collection that highlight the craft, ingenuity, and tradition of Navajo jewelry-making.
