Description
 
This meticulously crafted Zuni pettipoint bracelet was hand fabricated by Zuni silversmiths, Frank (Felix) and Mary Chavez. It is set with 57 hand cut natural Morenci turquoise cabs that are carefully set in fine hand crafted saw tooth bezels. Silver twist wire with an open repousse design creates a beautiful frame around the center turquoise cabs. The out edge has silver drops that are placed at the end and centered between each stone. The artist continues the design on the side portions of this bracelet and completes the design with twist wire and repousse on the shank.

The top of the bracelet measures 2 1/8" wide, with a inside measurement of 5 1/4" plus a 1 1/8" opening. There is no maker's mark on this piece--being of a time when such things were not commonly done.
