    Here's a nifty blast from the past for someone with a small wrist.  This cutie is al-most six-inches total inside circumference at 5 and 15/16th's-inches.  The old sand-cast build of the frame won't allow bending, so the wearer needs to have a total wrist circumference of 5 and 7/8th's-inches to 6 and 1/8th's-inches—measured around the wrist-bone.  On top of that sand-cast frame, the maker applied some hand-worked feathers and put a pretty chunk of Sleeping Beauty turquoise smack-dab in the middle.  The stone itself leads me to believe this cuff is probably 30 to 40-years-old—not quite old enough to be legitimately considered 'vintage' Native American jewelry (which is made in the 1960's or prior).  That Sleeping Beauty turquoise stone doesn't appear to be stabilized, yet it hasn't started to attain a greenish hue yet, which it would if it was made in the 60's or prior.  Weight of the cuff is exactly two-ounces, or 56.7-grams.  It doesn't seem to have a hallmark, which is common with the older stuff where a Native artisan made the cuff for his or her self to wear—not to sell to the the Bilagaana.  We could easily bring this cuff to life with cleaning and polishing of the Sterling—but we are getting a lot of requests to not do so.  So here's the undisturbed raw truth.  Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.  Enjoy!
