- Buffalo, NY
A quiet afternoon gave me a chance to clean out the case where I keep my favorite wearers. The bracelets posed for a photo...
I've learned a ton viewing and reading this thread in it's entirety, thank you all. I've also learned that finding a larger size bracelet that speaks to you can take some patience. I believe this bracelet to be modern. It was made by Garrett Hale. Old koa backdrop courtesy a 1926 Weissenborn that sounds much nicer than bracelet.
Edit. If anyone cares to tell me what style or era this bracelet might reflect or anything about techniques used to make it, I'm all ears >' '<

My buddies in NM will make you an awesome custom piece in your budget! Real Navajo made!New here, where do you guys buy jewelry (native american or just in general?) Preferably affordable (100 to 400)
I think it fits, Ross. It’s hat bling. I don’t have any jewelry but I’ve posted belt buckles here and they haven’t run me off yet. I’m not usually a fan of those bands but that one is beautiful.
How heavy is it?
Not sure where you are located but if you ever get the chance to visit Navajo or Zuni Territory, western New Mexico, SW Colorado, eastern Arizona do it. It is a magical part of the world and shopping/buying jewelry is a wonderful way to spend some time.New here, where do you guys buy jewelry (native american or just in general?)

I don’t have a scale but seller listed it as 90.9 grams. I’ve worn it for a few hours with no issue on strain or fatigue. I’d estimate it’s close in weight to my massive No. 1 belowHow heavy is it?
I was in Cortez CO 18 months ago and a vintage shop had a silver/turquoise hat band for not tooo high a price but I didn't buy it as it seemed so damned heavy. I do regret passing it by.I don’t have a scale but seller listed it as 90.9 grams. I’ve worn it for a few hours with no issue on strain or fatigue.
