    If you haven't already, isn't it time to get serious regarding choosing your Native American jewelry acquisitions?  There's not 'gonna be a better time.  From what we can ascertain from our very recent foray out West, prices will continue going up while quality goes down.  Lightweight pieces with average stones are becoming commonplace—and equally important—accepted by the buying public.  As one artisan expressed to me, "I can make ten lightweight tourist cuffs that don't require a lot of handwork by the time I can make one like you want."  Native jewelry makers are artists, but they are business-minded as well.  Anyway, if you are ready to step-up your game, you certainly can't go wrong with an Aaron Toadlena piece.  And this baby walks the walk.  First off, the total inside circumference of this beauty is 6.5-inches, including the 'gap.'  Don't buy it if you are intending to bend it.  The wearer of this cuff needs a total wrist circumference (measured around the wrist bone) from 6 and 3/8th's-inches to 6 and 5/8's-inches.  'None of that "gently adjustable" stuff will do.  Buy it to fit—please.  The turquoise in this stone is from the long-standing Fox Mine in Nevada (once one of Nevada's most productive mines).  It has sort-of a sultry look to it.  Aaron Toadlena gave this stone a nice resting place, surrounding it with exquisite old-style patina, scalloped-edge and finely-stamped silver-work.  Wear this when you don a saddle-stool and belly-up at Jackson Hole's Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, and make the tourists envious.  They might've just spent two of three times this much on a cuff nowhere near this nice.  Weight of this cuff is 88.2-grams, or 3.11-ounces.  Hallmarked "Aaron Toadlena."  Enjoy.
