More than one hundred and fifty years after the Navajo first used sections of twisted metal for adornment, Verna and Franklin Tahe employed modern methods to create this banded Navajo jewelry cuff. Four sterling silver segments of thin finely twisted wire were skillfully interspersed between five bands of smooth sterling silver. All were carefully bound together at the ends. The result is a modern classic. The bracelet is signed on the edge with the hallmark *TAHE and sterling.
*Tahe, a family of Navajo Indian artists form Northern Arizona.
Smooth sterling silver bands and segments of twisted wire were arranged to create this elegant classic cuff. Verna and Franklin Tahe work in a style that the couple learned from Franklin’s late grandfather. They have been active silversmiths since the 1980s. The couple’s distinctive jewelry is elegant and stylish.
This wonderful piece comes from our personal Native American collection and was acquired from Peyote Trading company of Albuquerque, New Mexico in the late 80's. We have kept it in pristine condition, cleaned and polished through the years. It is now time to pass it on.
