There is nothing at all average about this beautiful bracelet! This bracelet is a stunning piece of jewelry that is hand crafted by artist Joleen Yazzie out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise and Coral chip inlay. Imprinted designs accent the bracelet wonderfully while real Turquoise and Coral chip inlay is carefully set creating beautiful water wave design. In Native American beliefs, the water waves design represents continuous life. The bracelet is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.
