We bring to you this adorable bracelet! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artists Joleen Yazzie, out of genuine sterling silver along with Turquoise and Coral chip inlay. The inlay is delicately set, creating water wave designs and other traditional patterns. Imprinted designs can be seen accenting the cuff for a spectacular look. In Native American beliefs, the water waves design represents continuous life. The cuff is stamped sterling.
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 its appeal and beauty.
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.
