This is the good stuff, an early Navajo ingot silver bracelet. The silver has with the scars that result from working ingot silver. The wires of the bracelet show the folds and wrinkles of being drawn, hand-pulled wire and the nine old turquoise stones that have the warm surface of hand shaping and finishing. Approximately 5 1/2″ inside circumference with a 1 3/8″ gap and about 7/8″ across the center stone. A gorgeous, wearable piece of history!
