This fabulous Navajo hand made sterling silver bracelet takes your breath away! The sterling silver cuff bracelet is heavily decorated with a fancy applied silver rosette, repousse, applied silver hogan beads, and intricate stamp-work. An oxidized finish completes the old-style look. The bracelet was created by the late Navajo silversmith, Darryl Becenti.
The sturdy bracelet measures 2-1/8 inches wide, with an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-3/8 inches plus there is an opening gap of 1-3/16 inches. The bracelet weighs 131.7 grams. (That's over 4-1/2 ounces of sterling silver!) As reference, my wrist is 6 around and the bracelet fits comfortably loose.
Brand new in perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and has Darryl Becenti's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included. Darryl's work is exceptional! His cuffs are heavily hand stamped with remarkable, intricate details.
Darryl Becenti was born in 1957 in Gallup. New Mexico. He was taught silver work by his brothers-in-law, David & Leroy Reeves in 1980. Master Navajo Silversmith Darrell Becenti is the brother-in-law to the famous Sunshine Reeves, Gary Reeves, David Reeves/ Andy Cadman, Darrell Cadman Clan. Darrell made his own stamps and dyes, and heavily employed magnificent stars, fans, scallops, shells, and elaborate appliques in all of his jewelry.
