This amazing Diné bracelet by Juliana Williams was made as four silver ¼-inch wide bands put together securely by attaching ten silver drops between each row and silver bars at the ends.  Ten square cut blue-green turquoise gemstones were installed on each row of the four row-bracelet.  Some of the gemstones are pure blue and others have a golden matrix.

Artist Hallmark stamp of Juliana Williams, Diné JewelerThe bracelet is stamped JWMS and, additionally, the name Julianna Williams is written in ink.  The JW is documented as the hallmark of Julianna Williams, however, the MS has not yet been identified, but it is noted that she collaborated with her sister-in-law, whose name is not provided.

There is an elegance about square-cut turquoise that supports the gemstone as something especially significant.  Having four rows side by side is very impressive.
