NATIVE AMERICAN
VINTAGE NATIVE AMERICAN SILVER OVERLAY CUFF BRACELET, SIGNED DAYO

This is not a cuff for the delicate. It's 7 1/2" around the inside, plus a 3/4" opening, it's a full 2" wide, and it weighs a whopping 3.87 troy oz on my digital scale. As you can see, someone (fine; some idiot) polished away some of the rich black oxidation in the panels. That can be restored, but I'm always hesitant to alter a piece in any way, apart from a light hand-polishing. All in all, it's a handsome piece. Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoyed the view.

Shipping, handling, and insurance will be an additional $6; please note that that applies only to addresses in the United States. If you’re interested in this piece and live overseas, please contact me. I will not ship abroad without insurance, which would add quite a bit to the price and is not available for some countries. The best option would be for me to ship it to a friend of yours here in the States, who could forward it via the inexpensive (and lamentably uninsured) First Class International service. Please use a personal check or PayPal for payment. I do prefer a check, to avoid the PayPal fee, but it will have to clear before I ship.

ZUNI RING BY SHELDON AND NANCY WESTIKA

Zuni artisans Sheldon and Nancy Westika are a married couple whose beautiful, award-winning work resides in a variety of museums, including the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian! This ring is a classic example of their channel inlay designs, done with gloriously colored turquoise; think of it as wearing a bit of the sky . . . The ring is size 9.75. The lightly domed inlaid piece is 7/16" x 3/8" and the strong band is 7/16" at its widest point, tapering to 1/8" at the back. The ring is in very good condition.

VINTAGE TORTALITA STERLING & BISBEE TURQUOISE PENDANT; LARGE, HEAVY, & RARE!

This beautiful sterling and Bisbee turquoise pendant was made by Native American artist LORENZO TORTALITA, who hails from the Kewa Pueblo (formerly known as Santo Domingo). The pendant is 2 5/8" across at its widest point and 3 5/16" high (including the top loop). The necklace is 24 3/8" long, including the hook and its loop, and the silver beads are strung on a strong silver chain. I have not tested the chain for silver content. The pendant and necklace weigh a whopping 4.2 troy oz on my digital scale. There are minor imperfections in the beads and the usual faint surface scratches on the pendant. Overall, though, this piece is in wonderful condition. It has tremendous presence. Last but not least -- credit where it's due: many thanks to Richard at www.kivatrading.com for identifying the turquoise as Bisbee!

NATIVE AMERICAN FINE SILVER .970 BRACELET WITH TURQUOISE & CORAL INLAY

WOW !!!  This is just a fabulous bracelet.. The turquoise & coral inlay work is wonderful  & the colors just POP. It is very heavy for a bracelet this size 20.4g and it is made from a higher grade of silver than sterling, .970, see stamp. It is hallmarked WJ. The only silversmith in my references with this hallmark is Jim Wilson, a Navajo.  I emailed him a couple of days ago to see if it is his but haven't heard back yet.  The inside measurement is 5" with a 1 1/4" gap.

CAROL FELLEY SS Cuff Bracelet; Full Figural LEOPARD or CHEETAH

This handsome CAROL FELLEY STERLING SILVER CUFF BRACELET is adorned with a detailed, full figural LEOPARD or CHEETAH.  The details are great, from the individual spots to the front paw casually draped over the other, to the curled tail.  The beast is about 1 5/8" across, 1 1/2" from front to back, and rises a full 1/2" from the cuff.  The cuff is 1 7/8" wide in the center, tapering to 1 1/16" at the opening.  There's a subtle flare in the silver near the edges -- it wasn't left completely flat, and that gives it extra presence.  From front to back, the cuff is 1 7/8", the inside measurement is about 2 3/8 inches from side to side, and the opening is 1 3/8" across.  The bracelet has a nice presence on your arm -- it weighs 2.22 troy oz on my digital scale.  The silver was used generously -- this piece was meant to be worn for many years to come.  Apart from the usual light surface scratches, it's in great condition.  When I looked online, I found other SUNRISE pieces from Felley, but this is the only leopard (or cheetah; my knowledge of the great cats is spotty . . . sorry; couldn't resist) that I found.  If you're on the prowl for a great cat-ch (I'm on a roll here; don't stop me), you've arrived."

SOLD  Buyer pays $7 shipping, handling, and insurance. Please use PayPal.
