This incredible sterling silver Sleeping Beauty Turquoise inlaid bracelet was designed and handcrafted by the late well known Navajo silversmith Ben Touchine. Ben always made beautiful, substantial pieces. The inlay in this bracelet is absolutely fantastic. There are a total of 25 hand cut inlaid stones separated by sterling silver bars. This bracelet is ¾” wide and will fit a 6 1/4” wrist. It has a 1 3/8” opening. This bracelet features a unique hinged top opening, therefore it is not adjustable. This piece weighs 64 grams or 2.255 ounces. Signed by the artist.
Ben is a well-known artist who lived outside Gallup, New Mexico. Unfortunately Ben is no longer with us; he passed in 2013. He and his wife Angeline created fine quality jewelry, both in stone work as well as inlay for many years. They were married for over 37 years. Angeline continues to create pieces today that are highly sought after. Their daughter Vangie is also following in her parents' footsteps and is producing some wonderful pieces. We will definitely miss Ben, he was an outstanding artist! Quantity Available: 1
