Details

The large (1" in diameter) Natural turquoise stone at the center of this Native American handmade flower head cluster bracelet was hand cut, shaped and polished by a master lapidary (stone cutter) from the Zuni Pueblo. They hand cut, shaped, and polished a total of 43 natural turquoise stones (38 tear drop, 4 snake eye, and 1 large round). These stones show their age as their shade has changed over its long life due to the natural oils found on the skin of its wearers. Small silver drops and twisted wire further embellish this lovely bracelet. Three triangular wires secured at the terminals by a silver tab form the shank. The word "HUSKEY" is scratched onto the back of the bracelet, but we believe this was done by an owner rather than the maker. This outstanding bracelet is a ONE OF A KIND. Do not miss out on adding this exceptional bracelet to your collection of fine Native American arts.
