The 1960s and 1970s were a time of innovation for Native American artists. This multi-stone cuff is an example of the creativity of an unknown Navajo artist of that era. The artist placed 27 sky blue, high grade turquoise stones in rows of three with large silver drops in between the rows. All of these elements were placed on a solid cuff of silver that was oxidized to create a stunning contrast between the stones, the drops and the background. The bracelet is unsigned.  


Condition: The Multi Stone Cuff with Silver Balls is in very good condition. The stones are all intact. There is a nice dark patina.

Provenance: The bracelet comes from a gentleman Southwest Indian Jewelry collector in Colorado
