Product Description

Sensational early Native American Navajo handmade bracelet featuring 9 hand-cut turquoise stones each set in a handmade bezel and mounted to two fantastic hand stamped triangular wires. You can see in the pictures that the porous nature of the old silver and the unevenness caused by hammering the silver over and over again by hand.

We suspected that this beautiful bracelet was made by Fred Peshlakai. We showed it to Art Tafoya who has been studying his work for over 30 years. Fred has been an inspiration for Art which can be seen in his own sensational jewelry. The attribution is in writing with a picture of the bracelet and signed by Art. Please contact us if you have any questions.
