TURQUOISE FLOWERS AND STERLING CRESCENT MOONS ( Native American Navajo Indian Turquoise Bracelet ): This turquoise cluster work bracelet showcases sterling wirework details, with raised crescent moons outlining the whole central motif. Nineteen turquoise stones, on the blue side of blue-green, make up the floral decorative motif. Side pieces are two silver wires that meet to hug the wrist. Fits a medium wrist. Though unsigned, the feel of the piece speaks of the artist. I believe it is Navajo, but it might well be Zuni cluster-work that began in the 1920’s.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: Central motif - 3 1/4” wide & 1 3/4” high. The inside circumference of the bracelet measures 5 3/8”.
