The foundation of this Diné of the Navajo Nation turquoise bracelet was developed from two silver strips and a single twisted silver wire. All three converge at the bracelet ends and spread out to form the top of the bracelet. The silver wire is in the middle of the pair of silver strips.

A flat silver sheet at the top of the bracelet supports the display of silver and turquoise. Three turquoise gemstones are mounted in silver bezels which secure them to the silver sheet. The center turquoise gemstone is wrapped with twisted silver wire and surrounded by four silver drops.

Pyramidal silver strips anchor the bracelet foundation on the outer edges of the turquoise display.

The bracelet does not display the name of the maker, but the style of the work is of the mid twentieth century period.
