NEW!  Bold solid Navajo decorative stamped ketoh bow guard bracelet! The bow guard/bracelet displays heavy precise stampwork showing plant, thunderbird, sun, moon, and sunrise stamping along with detailed silver leaves in each corner. The silversmith has applied the stampwork to a thick solid piece of silver along with hand cut outer edging. He has then attached the decorated piece to a thick mat black leather arm/wrist band.

The actual silver ketoh measures 3 1/4" by 2 1/2" across with the black leather armband/bracelet measures 3 7/8" wide narrowing to 3 1/4" wide at each end. The length is 6 3/4" end to end and has five (5) holes set across each end. It will fit a wrist between 6 3/4" to 7 1/2" wrist or larger considering the space you adjust the opening. It weighs 100.1 grams (3.53 ounces or 3.22 troy ounces) and is unsigned Sterling Silver on leather by Navajo silversmith Leonard Maloney. Traditionally known as bow guards whereas the native would wear on arm to keep the bow string from hitting the arm/wrist. Over the years they have become worn more as bold men's bracelets. Very nice Navajo crafted bow guard/bracelet with beautiful decorative stampwork! $389.95
