Completely handcrafted in the 1960s, this bracelet is made of sturdy stuff. The sand-cast technique of silversmithing can be traced as far back as the Egyptian masters. Mexican silversmiths introduced the process to the Navajo sometime after the Long Walk. This bracelet was built to endure the test of time and shows just the right amount of wear. The natural Kingman Turquoise oval cabochon is cracked, but we chose not to replace it to maintain the bracelets antique appeal. This bracelet is substantial in weight but comfortably fashioned for daily wear.
