There is nothing at all average about this beautiful bracelet! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Frank Armstrong, out of genuine sterling silver, along with a real Turquoise stone and leather. The stone is gently placed in a hand cut bezel setting, while handcrafted silverwork can be seen creating a gorgeous concho design in the center for a lovely look! The leather is hallmarked by the artist.
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.
