This is a fabulous piece of Navajo handcrafted work of art created in the style of the Jim Morrison concho belt! Jim was quite taken with the Native American culture and had the original concho belt custom made for him by a Navajo artisan, which he used to wear at many of his concerts. He had it with him when he moved to France, but it got lost in the aftermath of his death. To this day, no one knows where the original concho belt went to.
This gorgeous copy of the First Phase Nickel Silver Concho belt features ten conchos and a belt buckle made from durable and long lasting nickel silver. Each concho is backed with leather and features exquisite hand stamped traditional Southwestern designs. These fabulous conchos were then given a satin finish for contrast against the black leather belt.
Each concho measures approx 3" x 2-1/2", the buckle measures about 2-7/8" x 3-3/4" and comes with a genuine 3/4" wide, 48" black leather belt. Weighs in at about 510 grams total with leather belt. Signed by the Navajo master silversmith Verna Blackgoat with shop hallmark. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
Due to the handmade nature of this belt, hand stamping may vary slightly. Each belt will be a unique one-of-a-kind!
THIS IS A GORGEOUS TOP QUALITY HANDCRAFTED COPY OF THE FIRST PHASE SILVER CONCHO BELT WORN BY FAMOUS ROCKER JIM MORRISON!
A FABULOUS GIFT IDEA FOR THE JIM MORRISON FAN!
