1.5" x 1.875" plus 3' braided leather cord

This piece was inspired by a Central Oregon sunrise that this father son duo fondly shared. Cliff and Sam collaborated on this bolo tie, marking a new dawn in  working together as Scharf Family Jewelers. The rising sun is an Oregon sunstone reflecting the multi metals used to portray the Deschutes River canyon.

Artist Statement:

Cliff shares, "This is a true blending of two artists." Cliff had the idea of a bolo tie and Sam did the design and overlay in sterling silver, copper and 14k gold-filled. Cliff made the tips and did the finish polishing. The Oregon sunstone is set in 22k gold. This duo is participating in shows together and look forward to doing more collaboration opportunities.
