Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing bracelet! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Elaine Sam, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones and Corals. There are a total of EIGHT stones that are delicately placed in hand cut bezel, while mini flat silver beads and gorgeous hand cut feather designs can be seen accenting for a marvelous look. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. The bracelet is stamped Sterling, Navajo, and is hallmarked.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.
