This Fabulous link bracelet was created by Navajo Artist Lyle Piaso
It's simply designed and features five lavender / purple Charoite gemstones.
It has a toggle clasp and 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's marked sterling and signed
It's 7 1/2" long and can be adjusted smaller
The gemstones are uniform and measures 1/2" wide by 3/8" tall.
Weight: 24.37 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
