Feast your eyes on this fantastic turquoise snake eye Zuni handcrafted sterling silver link bracelet, by master artist Steven Haloo, with two hundred ten (210) individually bezel set genuine turquoise snake-eyes (6 rows - 7 sections of 30 stones each). There is a double rope design of each side each section and silver beads surrounding each and every stone. What an incredible amount of work goes into making one of these bracelets! Only the Zuni have mastered working with such small stones. The stones are all a perfectly matched sky blue color.
This bracelet was entirely hand made by the Zuni artist Steven Haloo, son of Peter III & Vivian Haloo. Peter and Vivian Haloo have been creating beautiful snake-eye jewelry since 1965. They specialize in snake eye settings using his grandparents" designs. And now Stephen is following in his parents footsteps, creating jewelry that is even more beautiful, if that is possible. He uses extremely small cut stones that are set into individual saw tooth bezels. This is an excessively tedious task. Each of the bezels must be prepared and each stone must be cut to the same size and shape as the others.
The result is a stunning silver and turquoise link bracelet. The piece has 7 segments that are formed on a curvature - each with 30 turquoise stones - for a total of 210 turquoise stones. Each segment is linked to the next with silver hinges. The slide closure snaps firmly in place and has a lobster claw security chain for extra protection. The bracelet measures about 7-1/4 long when closed. It is 3/4 wide.
