Looking at such beauty tells the capabilities of Native American art! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay, hand crafted by artist Rosco Scott, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. There are a total of NINE stones that are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings for a stunning look. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this bracelet, the second layer forms gorgeous hand cut designs for a lovely finish. TWO silver bars make up the cuff and complete the bracelet to perfection! The bracelet is stamped sterling and 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.
