This top-quality sterling silver and spiny oyster bracelet was created by well known Navajo silversmith, Delbert Gordon. The bracelet has a reddish spiny oyster center, surrounded with twisted silver rope and applied stamped silver fans on either side. The three-way split cuff is deeply stamped from end to end with traditional Navajo silver-work all around.
The bracelet measures 7/8 wide with an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-7/8 plus an additional adjustable opening gap of 7/8. As reference, my wrist is 6 around (see photo) and the bracelet is comfortable loose on me. The bracelet weighs 40.5 grams. Exceptional quality and workmanship.
Brand new in perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and has Delbert Gordon's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included.
Delbert Gordon was born in Fort Defiance, Arizona in 1955. He is a self-taught silversmith and goldsmith. He has been a teacher of other silversmiths, including his nephew Derrick Gordon. Delbert Gordon is one of the best. He is one of those artists that turns everything he makes into a great piece of Navajo art.
