Description
 

The Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild organized in 1941 in Ft. Wingate, New Mexico, and started as a co-op in Pine Springs, Arizona, in 1942, the Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild is wholly owned by the Navajo Nation and has been creating jewelry, arts, and crafts for over 70 years. Some of the silversmiths that helped form the guild were, Ambrose Roanhorse, Chester Yellowhair and Fred Peshlakai. Now silversmiths had a marketplace to share their acquired skills. In the 1944 book, “The Navajo and Pueblo Silversmiths”, John Adair writes, “The type of silverware that the guild promotes is a revival of the old simple types of jewelry, without sets for the most part. Emphasis is placed on cast work".

The repoussé and stamp work are just beautiful on this bracelet. There is some very slight wear. A soft patina graces the entire piece.

This wonderful bracelet measures 1 1/8" wide. The inside is 5 15/16, with a 1 1/4" opening. The bracelet is signed with the official Horned Moon, Guilds hallmark.
