Part of what makes Harrison different from other Native American jewelers is that he uses stones from all over the world. The pink is rhodinite from Russia. The purple or lavender is phophosiderite from Peru. The vivid green is Maw Sit Sit from Miramar or southeastern Asia. The clear red is coral and the other red is spiny oyster. The dark blue is Lapis Lazuli and the light blue is denim lapis from Afghanistan.
This bracelet measures 1/2 inch wide at one end that has been flattened and flared at the terminal and it narrows to 3/8 inch at the other end. This is a nice touch that helps the bracelet stay on your wrist. It is 3/8 inch wide most of the way around. It has an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-3/8 inch plus a non-adjustable 1 inch gap and weighs about 26.4 grams. Fits up to 6-1/2 inch wrist. Jim's bracelets are designed to be worn below the wrist bone.
The work of Jimmie Harrison is very distinctive and easily recognizable. There are few working silversmiths capable of this level of stone to stone inlay jewelry. Jim Harrison creates these designs and then cuts and inlays each stone himself. He credits Preston Monongya and Jessie Monongya for his success as a fine jewelry artisan.
