NEW! Navajo-Zuni collaborated carved turquoise frog celestial stamped wide bracelet. I'm 100% positive a Zuni fetish carver made the turquoise frog. The artist added jet eyes and smaller jet buttons to represent the texture of a frogs skin. The Navajo silversmith then created the wide cuff adding multiple celestial symbols such as suns, moons, and stars across the cuff. He then built a smooth silver bezel to hold the frog and added claws to the frog which overlapped onto the bezel. Finishing by attaching the frog to the cuff.

The bracelet measures 1 1/4" wide with an inner circumference of 5 7/8" and a 1 1/8" opening. It will fit a 6 7/8" to 7" wrist as is and can be easily adjusted to fit between a 6 3/4" to 7 1/4" wrist. The frog measures 7/8" by 1 3/16" across. The bracelet weighs 57.4 grams (2.02 ounces or 1.85 troy ounces) and is hallmarked VB by Navajo silversmith Vernon Begay. Very nice and somewhat unique bracelet!  $309.95
