I wanted to make something that had the scale and heft of an old pocket watch--a piece that felt very pleasing to the eye and to the touch. The Edmond just feels good on and the shape is inviting, like a worry stone. I made it in 2006 and it has become a favorite among our collectors. The Apache blessing makes it a powerful talisman and I like the idea of wearing it so close to one's heart.
I gave the Edmond in 18k to my mother for Christmas one year and she loved it, although she didn't have it long before Grandpa Bellmer took it over. I would describe his style as 'Harley Guy with Pony Tail.' He now wears it everyday which really drives the point home that many of the styles work beautifully for both men and women.
