Affordable Spurs

I do not often encounter spurs made or enhanced by Native American silversmiths, but I like to keep at least one pair up at all times. The last pair of spurs I had on hand and sadly had to let go were magnificent, blue ribbon, prize winning, sterling silver beauties appraised at $6000 (see blog entry 9/25/2008). These spurs are cheap in comparison, but then again they are made of nickel silver and brass. Navajo Silvermith Lorraine Bahe Livingstone set the yokes of these spurs with 28 turquoise cabochons. Price $249.
