Accentuate your wrist with this fantastic Native American Zuni multigem raised mosaic inlay Koshare Clown bracelet, by Beverly Etsate. The elaborate 3-D clown figure is inlaid with Sleeping Beauty turquoise, coral, spiny oyster, Mother of Pearl on a black onyx medallian, set in sterling silver. Bev Etsate is one of the premier raised inlay artists working today and her creations are considered museum quality.
The bracelet measures 2 inches wide at the center and 3/8 inch wide at the terminals. The center medallian is mounted on a two wire sterling silver bracelet frame that joins at the sides with a third support and twisted silver wire running between each support. The bracelet has an inside end to end measurement of 5-1/2 inch with a carefully adjustable opening gap of 7/8 inch. Weighs 36.7 grams.
My wrist is 6 inches around, and the bracelet is a little difficult to get on, but fits well.
