Regular price $140.00

Tax included.
   Beautiful, Handcrafted and Signed, Vintage 1970's Sterling Silver and Blue Turquoise Needlepoint Cuff Bracelet.

   The central face of the bracelet measures just under approximately 1/2 of an inch, or about 12.5 millimeters high. The turquoise set area measures approximately 2 inches wide. The inside circumference, as shown, is about 6 and 3/4 inches, including the current 15/16 of an inch gap, but can be gently bent to fit your wrist within limits. If you prefer, inside width is about 2 and 5/16 inches, by approximately 1 and 11/16 inches front to back. (Included please find a US Quarter in the photographs, for measurement-challenged and ruler-averse.) The bracelet is hand signed inside, "Paul S. Hacario or perhaps Harasio JR"
and "Laguna, N.M." No marks as to content, but acid tested as solid Sterling silver. Weight is approximately 17.36 grams, which includes the stone weight, of course. 

   This bracelet is in very good vintage condition, but will exhibit the expected light surface scratches and a few tiny dings to the silver from normal wear. No chips or cracks visible to the turquoise. The bracelet is still pretty round, but slightly out of shape, but not bent or creased. Hand polished, but may have some missed tarnish here and there, especially in the crevices and interior, due to attempting to maintain the patina while cleaning the excess tarnish away. 

   A fantastic handmade and signed vintage Zuni Needlepoint Sterling silver and turquoise bracelet
.  Classic Native American design set with rich, vivid blue turquoise.
