Cody Hunter’s multidimensional “Canyon Sandstone” designs of silver and 14k gold on the outside, with scenes from Canyon de Chelly on the inside, have won him awards at Santa Fe Indian Market and many dedicated collectors across the country. A cowboy at heart, Cody also creates wonderful horse motifs in the storyteller bracelet style, which he uses in pendants, earrings, buckles and bola ties.
In addition to being a featured artist in our gallery, Cody participates in the Heard Museum Indian Market, Santa Fe Indian Market and the Eiteljong Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Cody Hunter’s bracelets are based on the traditional concept of “Walking In Inner Beauty.” The Navajo say, “If you judge someone from the outside you will miss their inner beauty.” Sun rays and moon beams grace the outside of his bracelets, along with ancient petroglyph designs. The inside depicts a typical way of life on the reservation for the Navajo people.
