This stunning link bracelet was made by Navajo Artist Lyle Piaso
The boulder turquoise stones are almost a dead ringer for Sunnyside Turquoise.
The stones have black with bright blue and tiny lines of brown. It dangles beautifully on the wrist.
This type of bracelet is fairly easy to add more circles to make it longer. I had
3 extra circles added to one of my bracelets at a kiosk jeweler in the mall.
It didn't match exactly but that was fine with me.
It's marked sterling and signed
It's 7 1/4" long and can be adjusted smaller
the center stone is 3/4" tall by 3/4" wide.
Weight: 32 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
