NEW!  Beautiful bold Navajo turquoise spiny oyster sandcast ketoh bow guard bracelet! The bow guard/bracelet displays a beautiful sandcast sunburst ketoh in the center. The ketoh sports an oval cut and polished blue turquoise stone with dark brown spiderweb matrix set in a smooth silver bezel wrapped with twisted wire in center along with four (4) round cut and polished red/orange spiny oyster shells, each set in a smooth bezel and mounted at each corner of the ketoh. The artist continues decorating by adding four (4) oval turquoise set sunburst buttons mounting two (2) to each side of the ketoh. All mounted/attached to a thick heavy brown leather armband.

The actual sandcast ketoh measures 3 1/4" by 2 1/8" with each of the turquoise sunburst buttons measuring 1 1/8" by 7/8". The brown leather armband/bracelet measures 3 7/8" wide narrowing to 2" wide at each end. The length is 13" end to end and has holes set at 9 1/2" and 8 1/4". It will fit a wrist between 7 1/4" to 9 1/2" wrist whereas holes can be added as needed to fit. It weighs 184 grams (6.49 ounces or 5.92 troy ounces) and is unsigned Sterling Silver on leather. Traditionally known as bow guards whereas the native would wear on arm to keep the bow string from hitting the arm. Over the years they have become worn more as bold men's bracelets. Very nice Navajo crafted bow guard/bracelet with beautiful turquoise! $499.95
