Vintage Navajo Sterling Silver Bracelet/ Signed JS James Shay Bear Claw Silver Cuff/ Turquoise Cluster Bracelet 61.7 Grams

Vintage Navajo Sterling Silver Bracelet/ Signed JS James Shay Bear Claw Silver Cuff/ Turquoise Cluster Bracelet 61.7 Grams

$ 700.00

This is a lovely handcrafted sterling silver bracelet by Navajo artist James Shay.

Signed JS, Sterling.

James Shay's pieces are featured in "Hallmarks of the Southwest" book, by Barton Wright. He is a Navajo artist  with amazing skills.

This piece has 11 turquoise stones, in various sizes and a bear claw. We are not sure if the bear claw is genuine or faux.

The edges have a twisted wire rope and stamping. There are silver balls and curled silver coils as accents. At the sides there is simple linear stamping.
Nice patina.

Size can be adjusted somewhat by a jeweler.

We have cleaned with a silver cloth very slightly. We did not want to remove the patina.

GRAM WEIGHT: 61.7 

LABEL: Signed JS - Sterling.

The artist is James Shay, Navajo.

COLOR: Sterling Silver, turquoise

MATERIAL: Sterling silver, turquoise, bear claw. * Not sure if bear claw is real or fabricated.

CONDITION: Very good. Wear appropriate for age. Some signs of wear and patina. There is a dent on each side of the stamped work. I am not sure buy maybe a good jeweler can fix this.

CARE: Clean with silver cloth. Or use a silver polish if you want it shinier.

MEASUREMENTS:   6  5/8"  L   (not including gap)    1  1/8" W     1  3/16" Gap
