This stylish contemporary sterling silver twist wire cuff bracelet was created by award winning Navajo artist, Orville Tsinnie. The heavy bracelet is made from heavy gauge solid sterling silver wire that has been flattened and flared at the terminals and wrapped in silver twist wire. Orville has made this extra large signature wire wrap cuff bracelet with thicker and heavier silver wire than the smaller sizes. (See last two photos for comparison) This is NOT a dainty or flimsy bracelet; it weighs 67.7 grams.
Size extra-large only. The bracelet measures 6-1/4 inches long end-to-end plus there is a non-adjustable 1-1/2-inch gap. Weighs 67.7 grams.
The terminals are flattened and flared - a nice touch which helps the bracelet stay on your wrist.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked by and purchased directly from the artist, Orville Tsinnie, before his death in 2017.
Orville Tsinnie was a master Navajo silversmith who started making jewelry in the 1970s and won numerous awards, including a Lifetime Achievement award from the Indian Arts and Crafts Association (IACA). The level of craftsmanship in Orville's work is superior. His designs are flawlessly executed, his soldering technique very clean, and his finishing and polishing meticulous. This careful attention to detail sets Orville's jewelry apart from many others, and reveals the pride he takes in his work.
Regretfully, Orville Tsinnie passed away in May of 2017. He will be deeply missed.
