This bracelet was made from sheet silver, over which were added edges of silver bars which provide substantial strength to the bracelet.  Across the top, the artist placed turquoise and coral cabs in alternating positions, each secured in a silver bezel, and surrounded by twisted wire.  

To add embellishments in silver, the artist placed twisted silver wire on the edges, silver leaves at the ends, twisted silver bars overlapped by the leaves, and a number of silver drops throughout.  The bracelet dates to the 1970s, and was not signed with the name of the artist.

Provenance: this Diné Vintage Turquoise and Coral Row Silver Bracelet is from the collection of a client from Oklahoma
