BR821 inlay turquoise and silver bracelet
- The Originals
Navajo bracelet in sterling silver inlaid of Sonoran turquoises (Arizona).
This bracelet requires great precision from the artist, who works to cut the raw turquoise into several rectangles, to insert them on a thick sterling silver base. Each turquoise rectangle is separated by thin silver barrettes, creating an exceptional piece representative of the "channel inlay" process.
The shank is beautifully crafted: the middle part is thick enough to accommodate the inlay and the ends are thinner, for a comfortable fit on the wrist.
The handmade inlay is a Zuni technique, that in the case of this bracelet, is made by a Navajo artist. It is a gathering of different stones (turquoise, coral, mother-of-pearl, black jet), carved and put together in order to create a thin geometrical pattern. The piece is then polished in order to give a smooth and elegant finish to the jewel.
