This Navajo hand made sterling silver turquoise bracelet was hand made by Native American silversmith Andy Cadman. The bracelet features a square-cut natural Turquoise Mountain stone set in a straight bezel, accented with twisted silver wire, silver raindrop beads and applied repousse work. The bracelet is stamped from end to end with the old style stamp-work for which Andy Cadman is well known.
The sterling silver cuff measures 5/8 inch wide at the front and has an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-1/2 inch plus an opening gap of 1-3/16. My wrist is 6 around and the bracelet is comfortably loose on me. But it can be carefully adjusted. The bracelet weighs 34 grams.
Brand new in perfect condition. Stamped sterling and has Andy Cadman's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included.
Andy Cadman is the older brother of well-known silversmith Darrel Cadman and a half-brother of renowned silversmiths Gary and Sunshine Reeves and he was taught to do silver work by them. Born in 1966 in Gallup, New Mexico, Andy started silverwork in 1989. The Cadman brothers and the Reeves brothers exhibit certain similarities in their work. They all work in the Navajo revival style .
