Description

Like his well-known family of prize-winning jewelers, Mark uses time-tried materials and symbols, in entirely handmade work. Starting from a realistic concept, he abstracts the imagery, turning tradition into contemporary, as in this handsome bracelet.

 

The bracelet is tufa cast. Against a darkened silver background he has shown polished silver elements depicting a vignette of traditional Navajo life: a field of corn, a hogan, clouds, and desert plants. The cornstalks are delicately “drawn”, and the hogan and other elements are recognizable. Unlike other depictions of similar designs, however, these are almost like sketches; fluid and suggestive, rather than fully detailed.

 

Their off-center placement also creates a contemporary feel, with large areas of space between each element.The highly polished border is a glittering contrast to the darkened and textured background. With dark and bright, this is almost a black and white palette – very classic, very chic.

 

Wear this contemporary bracelet alone, or stack it with others; it will shine in every way.

Bracelet Sizing

Narrow Navajo Scene Cuff

Measure your wrist with a soft tape measure. Run it around the wrist, not too tightly or too loosely, just in front of the wrist bone. That is the measurement that we use for each bracelet on our website.

THE “CUFF” MEASUREMENT INCLUDES THE TOTAL CIRCUMFERENCE OF THE BRACELET, INCLUDING THE GAP. The width denotes the widest part of the cuff, itself. If your wrist size is substantially greater than the bracelet’s, it will be too small.

Some bracelets may be adjusted slightly, case by case. Bracelets with inlaid stones around the entire surface cannot be sized. For any doubts, please contact us with your wrist size and information about the bracelet(s) and we can check the compatibility.
