Additional Comments: Very nice bracelet, heavy gauge metal, interesting selection and arrangement of stones, high level of craftsmanship. The long punched curves along the edge of the bracelet are deceptively simple-- very difficult to execute cleanly as in this piece. The deliberate combination of two distinct colors of turquoise shows that this maker thought outside the box, the sign of a true artist. We don't know the identity of the maker, but the bracelet was acquired in an estate that included collector pieces by Carlos White Eagle and Tony Ohmsatte.
