Navajo crafted cuff bracelet with Kokopelli design motif in sterling silver.

One of the best compositions of Kokopelli in sterling silver that we have ever seen, this lovely cuff bracelet is a show stopper. Crafted in solid sterling silver by Navajo artists in the 1980's this Kokopelli cuff bracelet is stout, large and very well made. Created in the Hopi "overlay" style this Kokopelli cuff bracelet is actually two distinct layers of sterling silver that have been annealed together to form a finished work.

The process of annealing requires a single piece to be the "shape" or base of the item and the second is a layer of sterling that is "cut-away" with the design. The process of annealing or soldering the two layers together is very time consuming and requires great skill and patience. With the technique of "overlay" in jewelry, there is very little room for error.

This unique one-of-a-kind cuff bracelet featuring Kokopelli measures approximately 3.25 inches wide and is set to fit an 8 to 8.5 inch wrist.

This Kokopelli motif cuff bracelet is a Navajo / Hopi masterwork!
