An unknown Diné (Navajo Nation) artist employed the inventive use of stamps to fabricate this amazing wide cuff bracelet. 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: The Wide Cuff with Medallion and Arrows bracelet is in excellent condition.

Provenance: From a Colorado collector
