Rare vintage Kewa/Santo Domingo silver overlay storyteller bracelet. The silversmith has used the silver overlay technique to tell a story. The bracelet displays bear paws/tracks along with crop symbols and other tribal symbols to relate to the story. The silversmith, Vidal Aragon (b.1923-2015), has capped both ends of the bracelet with a silver cross wire which isn’t seen in newer storyteller overlay bracelets. Some consider Mr Aragon as the grandfather of silver overlay storyteller jewelry and rated with the best known silversmiths since 1940..

The bracelet measures 5/16” wide with an inner circumference of 5 1/4” plus a 1” opening. Made for a small wrist, it will fit a 6 1/8” to 6 1/4” wrist and can be slightly adjusted to fit between a 6” to 6 3/8” wrist. The bracelet weighs 16.7 grams and is hallmarked with VA connected - Footprint by Kewa silversmith Vidal Aragon (.b1923-2015). He began producing in 1940. We received the bracelet completely black with patina to the point you couldn’t see the difference between the cuff and the overlay. I mean completely black! We cleaned the bracelet and re-oxidized the cut out areas to the point it looks brand new. Beautiful vintage Vidal Aragon collector’s storyteller overlay bracelet! $439.95
