We are pleased to offer this fantastic new sterling silver & turquoise bracelet handmade by world famous Navajo silversmith Darryl Becenti. We were shocked and saddened to hear of Darryl's untimely death in late March of this year. One of our suppliers of Darryl's jewelry just opened back up after having been closed since late March and we purchased as much of Darryl's jewelry as we could.
This Native American cuff bracelet is set with 18 natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise stones - gorgeous sky-blue color with no matrix. The stones sit in plain bezels in a cross design. The cuff is covered end to end with deep stamp-work, applied repousse work, silver beads and more.
The sturdy bracelet measures 1-5/8 inch wide, with an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-5/8 inch plus there is an opening gap of 1-5/16 inch. The bracelet weighs 130.5 grams (almost 5 ounces). The bracelet fits a medium to large wrist. Mt wrist is 6 inches around and the bracelet is too large for me.
Brand new in perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and has Darryl Becenti's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included.
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 and he is the brother-in-law to the famous Sunshine Reeves, Gary Reeves, David Reeves, Andy Cadman, and Darrell Cadman clan. His jewelry is highly prized for it's deep hand-stamped Navajo designs, repousse silver work, and thick gauge silver.
