WOW! Rare and hard to find extra large vintage Navajo five (5) stone spiderweb turquoise nugget decorated sun buttons and silver leaves cuff bracelet. The silversmith has created a very large cuff and installed five (5) brilliant blue turquoise nuggets with brown and reddish brown spiderweb martix. These stones are more often known as "sea foam" turquoise due to the texture of the nodules that resemble the foam made by ocean waves. Each nugget is set into a saw tooth bezel. The artist includes twelve (12) sun stamped silver buttons that the artist places two (2) each separating between each stone and two (2) each at each end of the stones. The artist also mounts a sliver leaf at each end of the cuff. All mounted to a scorched blackened silver base. The artist continues decorating by running triangular wire flanked on the inside with single wire twist and outside with double wire twisted wire along the outer rims of the cuff. The silversmith finishes by capping both ends with twisted wire ans large heavy gauge half round wire caps.

This massive cuff measures 1 3/8" wide narrowing to 7/8" wide at both ends with an inner circumference of a whopping 7 1/8" plus a 1 1/2" opening. It will fit an extremely large 8 1/2" to 8 5/8" wrist as is and can be carefully adjusted to fit between a 8 1/4" to 8 3/4" wrist. The massive bracelet weighs 89.8 grams (3.17 oz or 2.89 ozt) and is unsigned. The cuff was almost black from patina when we received it, but the inside wasn't. Based on the massive length I'd say it's all sterling silver with possibly a nickel silver base. The reason it's so hard to find bracelets this large is due mainly because the supply houses sheet silver only comes 6" wide. The silversmiths have to buy a lot of extra sheet silver to make just one bracelet this big. Made for a very large man!  $598.95
