This was one of the two pieces that caught my attention. It was on the display table of a lady who told me in a voice tweeked with pride that her son makes them. She obviously has good reason to be proud of him.He is an academically trained Chef who now prepares meals at one of Santa Fe's top eating establishments. He is a craftsmanship is now a sideline. We have no caribou in New Mexico, but I learned on an earlier trip that suppliers come out to the Pueblo and sell materials so I suppose the caribou bone is readily supplied. This is a great piece for stylish rodeo wear.
