DESCRIPTION
Hand cut and polished pieces of Sleeping Beauty turquoise, Red Spiny Oyster shell, Black Jet and Mother of Pearl are set in mosaic channel inlay style within this sterling silver bezel. The band itself is designed with a heavy gauge of shimmering and polished sterling silver.
INFO
Native American silversmiths use their own techniques in developing their designs in their jewelry. They work with small pieces of coral, jet and turquoise arranged in complex patterns. The small cut stones are set in to the jewelry by 3 different techniques. Needlepoint, channel or mosaic inlay. In needlepoint each stone is individually cut then mounted in its own silver bezel. When doing channel work, the silversmith constructs a honeycomb of silver pockets or channels. Within the channel he cements a small piece of stone. Mosaic inlay has its origin in the prehistoric techniques. Cut stones are arranged side by side into a mosaic which is enclosed in a silver bezel which is then mounted on a silver plate.
Spiny oyster is a clam shell oyster that can be found between the Northeast coast of Mexico and the East coast of Baha California in the Sea of Cortez. The shell functions the same as all clam shells but it is quite ugly on the outside with long hard extensions and a rough shell. The rest of the shell can be beautiful in different colors ranging from red, orange, yellow, purple and other shades. Each shell is cut in different sizes and shell pieces are polished for use. Much like a rough stone the polishing brings out incredible gorgeous colors! Native Americans have used shells for decades for various reasons from wampum as money to shells for jewelry.
The small pits in the shell show its authenticity. Manmade shells, made of an epoxy or plastic material, will be smooth with no pits or grooves.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise
The Sleeping Beauty mine is seven miles outside of Globe, Arizona. Its turquoise is noted for its solid, light blue color with no matrix. The host rock is usually granite. Sleeping Beauty turquoise is the favorite of the Zuni Pueblo silversmiths for use in petit point, needlepoint and inlay jewelry. This mine is one of the largest in North America. Monty Nichols, owner and miner of the Sleeping Beauty mine, says that the mine is producing well, about 1600 pounds a month. Of that, only 4% is natural. Most of the turquoise from the mine, 80-90%, is altered in some way. Most of that percentage is enhanced, which is more expensive than stabilization, and sold to large distributors in this country and Europe. Now, most of the turquoise that comes out of that mine comes form the tons of tailings piles that have been accumulating all these years.

BRACELET SIZE
If you are not sure of your wrist size for a bracelet, try these steps~
Wrap a loose measuring tape or piece of string around the bone area of your wrist from point to point. Where the measuring tape meets together you will see your wrist size. If using a string, lay it flat on a ruler and you will determine your size. It is highly recommended that you buy only the bracelets that will fit your wrists. To stretch a bracelet to fit on your wrist, not only are you putting stress on the silver but also on the stones - so please know your sizes! All of our items are inspected and mailed with stones intact.
