Painstakingly hand crafted and stamped by a Navajo silversmith, this striking Navajo Stamped Sterling Silver Feather Bracelet with 5 Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Stones is asymmetrically accented with 5 small stones of Sleeping Beauty turquoise. (Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor, or representatives of the Creative Force.) Sterling silver. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring turquoise variations and handcrafted sterling silver assure each bracelet is one-of-a-kind.
The “skystone” turquoise—like the small, individually crafted turquoise cabochons jeweling this Navajo Stamped Sterling Silver Feather Bracelet with 5 Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Stones—has been mined by Native Americans since 1000 CE. Highly sought for its sky blue color and little-to-no veining, Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes from a now-closed Arizona mine of the same name. The long tradition of stamping designs into sterling silver is believed to have begun in the 1850s with Atsidi Sani, who is said to have learned to work silver from a Mexican smith. The extensive Navajo jewelry holdings of the National Museum of the American Indian include many beautiful examples of hand-stamped sterling silver jewelry, many adorned with Sleeping Beauty turquoise.
