An unknown Diné silversmith employed the inventive use of stamps to fabricate this amazing Navajo Wide Silver Cuff with Medallion and Arrows Symbology. Using only four distinctive stamps, the talented smith created a series of intricate design elements.

For the center, the artist used a series of crescents and V shapes to fashion a circular medallion motif. The same elements, along with the addition of arrows, were used on the sides of the bracelet. It is a symmetrical and stylish piece of Southwest Indian Jewelry.

 

Condition: This Navajo Wide Silver Cuff with Medallion and Arrows Symbology  is in excellent condition.

Provenance: From a Colorado Southwest Indian Jewelry collection
