This sterling silver Oval Concho Expandable Bangle is designed and handmade by Hopi artisan Piki Wadsworth. The hand-stamped concho charm is a fresh interpretation of a traditional concho that was originally made to adorn belts. Sterling silver. Handmade in the U.S.A.
Originally conchos (or conchas)—like the charm presented on this Oval Concho Expandable Bangle—were linked together to form Navajo belts. The use of conchos is believed to have been inspired by conchos adorning the headstalls of Mexican bridles. Handmade conchos are time-consuming to make, with each design element being struck, shaped, or cut one at a time. Our National Museum of the American Indian curates hundreds of Navajo and Hopi jewelry pieces, including silver concho belts, buckles, buttons, brooches, and earrings.
5.875" circumference.
