This sterling silver tri-sided bracelet or cuff is an example of simple elegance for which Diné silversmiths are known. One band of silver was expertly worked to form a triangular shape, with one side of the triangle resting against the wrist, and the other two sides rising up to a point. The artist formed the bracelet so the edges, while sharply defined,  feel smooth. It is a bold, traditional design, one that was common in the early 20th Century, before the styles changed to meet the tastes of the tourists. The bracelet was made during the last quarter of the 20th century and is unsigned.
