This classic Navajo handmade turquoise and sterling silver cuff was hand fashioned in the old pawn style by silversmith Albert Jake. The natural Kingman turquoise stone is set in a deep handmade bezel. Applied silver arrows flank the stone. Unique styling and oxidation on the sides of the bracelet.
The bracelet measures 3/4 inch wide with an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-3/4 inches plus an opening gap of 1 inch and it weighs 50 grams. My wrist is 6 inches around and the bracelet is loose on me.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Albert is working for a new company now in Albuquerque called "Heavy by Hand", which uses heavier gauge silver and premium stones. So the bracelet is hallmarked A. Jake and also HBH with an Indian head, for the company Heavy By Head. Gift box and Certificate of Authenticity included with your purchase.
Navajo Albert Jake was born in Zuni New Mexico in 1959. He learned silver smithing from his parents and has been creating beautiful handmade jewelry since 1987.
