The cuff tapers from 0.5" to 0.15" wide. This bracelet is intended for a child.
This cuff has a wrist gap, and is designed to slip over the wrist at the opening. This gorgeous sterling silver split cuff bracelet was handmade by a talented Navajo silversmith during the 1920s!
It features a tapered cuff that splits in the center and graduates in size at the ends. Its lovely design incorporates a stunning scalloped edge at the top and bottom of the piece to add extra detail.The theme of this piece is friendship, exemplified by the hand stamped crossed arrows on the front, as well as the crossed bows down the side of the cuff. Other symbols on this piece include tepees, sun rays, mountain ranges, diamond shaped medicine man's eye, and arrows. These symbols have a darker patina, which causes them to really stand out against the silver surface of this piece. At the center of the split in the cuff are two crossed arrows with a beautiful blue turquoise stone at their center, adding a lovely colored accent to the design. The stamping details, as well as the cut outs of this piece, are absolutely lovely, and this piece would make a wonderful gift for a tiny loved one! One of the sides of this piece has a very slight, faint bend. Your local jeweler can straighten this out easily. The price has been adjusted to reflect this.
This listing is for the item only. This beautiful piece was made by a very talented Native American silversmith.
It features hand crafted silversmith work throughout. Antique Native American jewelry is very rare to find. This is due to these pieces being made for reservation and personal use before the tourist trade became popular. Very few pieces were made and even less survived to today.
Native American silversmiths, working from 1870 to 1900, learned the stamping of ornaments from Mexican leather workers, who had learned the skill from silversmiths. Stampings are usually hand hammered using a handcrafted stamp and include traditional Native American symbols.
