Navajo Turquoise and Silver Cuff Bracelet
You'll be sure to stand out with this dramatic statement cluster-style Native American cuff. Large, evenly-colored turquoise cabochons adorn this silver bracelet, along with twisted wire and stamped motifs. Each stone cabochon (46 total) is individually set in a serrated bezel.
On a tour of New Mexico in the winter of 1929-1930, Dr. Barnes acquired a large number of turquoise and silver jewelry pieces, which are displayed alongside paintings and other objects. As with all of his purchases, he chose pieces according to the principles of light, line, color, and form. Our retail collection of Native American jewelry is from the Navajo reservation in New Mexico, where the same artistic traditions Dr. Barnes admired continue in jewelry making practices today. You can enjoy the beauty and grace of this timeless style with pieces made by contemporary designers working in long-held traditions.
3 inches high by 3 inches wide, with 2 1/2 inch diameter inside cuff. Sterling silver and turquoise. Handmade, one of a kind.
This piece closely resembles a Navajo ring from Dr. Barnes' collection.
