Bold solid vintage Navajo Eagle Dancer turquoise cluster collector's bracelet. The artist has used twenty three (23) cut and polished turquoise nuggets presumably from the #8 Mine in Nevada. Each nugget is set into a fine cut saw tooth bezel with decorative stamped silver buttons separating each stone from the next. The decoration is broke up into three (3) sections with the main center section sporting a silver Eagle Dancer or Eagle Kachina with a beak full of teeth and wearing a sash belt, loincloth, and leggings/moccasins. He also appears well fed with a bulging belly and chest. He is surrounded by eleven (11) stones. The two (2) side sections each display six (6) stone nuggets. All sections are mounted to a scorched and blackened silver base. The silversmith has mounted the three (3) sections to a solid five (5) half round wire cuff which has been soldered together at each end with a cross strip of silver.

The large bracelet measures 2 1/4" wide narrowing to 1" wide at both ends. It has an inner circumference of 5 1/2" plus a 1 1/8" opening. It will fit a 6 1/2" to 6 5/8" wrist as is and could be slightly adjusted to fit between a 6 3/8" to 6 3/4" wrist. The beautiful bracelet weighs a hefty 90.8 grams (3.20 oz or 2.92 ozt) and is hallmarked, but can't quite make it out? Appears to be RC? Bold heavy vintage collector's bracelet with beautiful turquoise!  $1279.95

The #8 Mine was discovered in 1925 first mined in 1929. It has been closed for over 40 years and was known for producing some of the largest nuggets ever mined.
