This is absolutely magnificent. A work of art. THIS WEIGHS OVER 156 GRAMS. The largest beads are the center ones with all the OLD MAGNIFICENT INLAID TURQUOISE STONES! THE COLOR OF THE STONES-WOW! 9 of the beads are all inlaid with old blue turquoise beads. The largest one in the center is 1 3/8 inches tall (double that around) and 1 1/8 inches wide (double that around). They go down just a little bit however the turquoise beads always remain VERY LARGE. Then they are followed by all hand tooled old engraved bench beads which start out at about 10-11 mm and taper down slowly to the smallest being about 5-6 mm. THIS IS A REMARKABLE MUSEUM PIECE. I did notice 2 small turquoise stones missing on different beads. Very hard to tell I had to look hard to find them. There are NO DENTS AND NO DINGS. This is a gorgeous old Navajo piece. No marks that I could find… Gently acid tested and guaranteed sterling. THIS IS VERY SOLID-VERY GORGEOUS and one of the most magnificent Navajo pieces you will ever see. Please do not expect our items to be new… Unless otherwise mentioned in our listings they are vintage or pre-owned and will arrive as such.

Rare Vintage Kirk Smith Turquoise Cluster Navajo Cuff Sterling Silver Bracelet
VINTAGE KIRK SMITH TURQUOISE CLUSTER NAVAJO CUFF. NATIVE AMERICAN HAND MADE. A vintage handcrafted sterling silver turquoise cluster cuff bracelet by famed (now deceased) Navajo Silversmith, Kirk Smith. This piece is signed by the artisan and I’m told it dates to his work in the 1980s. It comes with a certificate of authenticity and a gift box. Kirk Smith’s jewelry is highly sought after, quite collectible and getting more and more rare. Kirk’s life was tragically cut short in 2012 at the age of 55 by a drunk driver. Since then, his jewelry has increased in price and value, especially for discerning collectors. Kirk worked and learned from another acclaimed artist and Navajo silversmith, Harry Morgan (who was also his brother-in-law). Smith became known for his classic “revivalist” Navajo design where the pawn finish mimics the appearance and patina of naturally-aged sterling silver. Using heavy sterling silver, detailed craftsmanship and beautiful, high quality stones, Smith’s pieces won many awards through his career. This bracelet’s measurements are. Widest point across = 2.5. Tallest point high = 1 3/4. Depth = 1 3/4. Inside measurement = 5/38″ around’ 1 1/8″ gap opening. Total Weight: 104 grams. Note: May be challenging to resize this cuff because the silver is so heavy. My wrist measures 6 1/2 around and it fits fine. All of my items come from a smoke and pet-free home and from someone who takes great care ad pride with all of my items. I only sell items from my personal collections. While you’re here, please check out my.

RARE NAVAJO VINTAGE PEYOTE BIRD SQUASH BLOSSOM NECKLACE HAND SIGNED J. NELSON (JOHN) TURQUOISE CHIP INLAY. 31 long from hook-and-eye clasp to bottom of centered peyote bird. The center peyote bird is 3 tall x 2 wide at the widest point. The other 10 peyote birds are 2 tall x 1.25 at the widest point. PLEASE NOTE: The photographs give the illusion the jewelry looks larger than it is; this is to show you the detail you could not see without a magnifying glass. Please look at ALL photographs postedthere is always one or two photos with ruler measurements in every listing created to give you an accurate. Also, the photographs posted are shot from the actual item no stock photos. The colors may vary just slightly due to light vs. Shadow effect of the flash. The items weighed on the scale are in grams. This is a magnificent timeless piece of Native American Indian Art from a truly talented master of his craft-John Nelson! His pieces will grace museums, if they havent already, due to his remarkable respect among his peers and the top-notch quality of his work! Appraised by Gilbert Ortega Jr. Listed here is a gorgeous peyote bird or water bird necklace created in the squash blossom style most likely in the late 70s. This hand constructed necklace features eleven large and colorful peyote birds. Each of the birds hold an absolute stunning oval polished turquoise stone with wonderful blues, terrific spider webbing with glistening pyrite and black smoke spots. The largest peyote bird in the center features a bezel set natural blue turquoise stone surrounded by a twisted rope design atop heart shape motif with crescent moon stampings yielding to the birds neck, beak and outer border. Inside the surrounding border is an amazing display of the chip inlay technique using a variety of green and blue turquoise and blood red coral. Lets stop here and read the following while eyeing the photos. Take an extra look at the outstanding colors of the turquoise chip inlay-all different hues of blues, greens, browns and creams are exploding atop the solid black background-this is the epitome of the chip inlay technique-and its as smooth as a babys butt! It looks so darn mosaic too! I wish I could have a swimming pool made of this inlayo. All the other peyote birds follow this design with the exception of the middle peyote bird who has a larger heart-shape motif. It looks like the other birds have a smaller heart shape, but is covered by the bezel set turquoisehmmmmmdid Mr. Nelson decided to add the turquoise adornments to the smaller birds later??? Uniting all this incredible beauty together is the handmade. Beads double strung under the heavy peyote birds yielding to a single strand ending with a hook-and-eye closure. As I mentioned in the condition part of this listing, 3 of the bench beads are dented, please check photos. There is so much culture and tradition, pride and spirit in this piece, but best of all, the artist signed by hand J. NELSON on the bottom of the peyote bird in the center. Later, he would stamp his pieces which read J. Even though this necklace is not marked. 925 or sterling silver, it has been tested positive. With no marks or cosmetic damage. This is big, bold and beautiful necklace with substantial heavy weight at 210 grams. If you like the polish look, your local favorite jeweler can do a heck of a better job than I could anyway! ABOUT JOHN NELSON, NAVAJO. John Nelson, born in Winslow, Arizona has 2 brothers, 2 sisters, 3 children and 4 grand-children. He enjoys being outside and especially loves going to garage sales and the flea market. He moved to Albuquerque at a young age and later attended the Albuquerque Indian School. Thats where a good friend in high school taught him how to craft silver. He has been working with silver and mostly turquoise since the early 70s. John Nelson has designed jewelry for over 40 years. As his health has slowly hampered him, he has significantly reduced his production of timeless beauties. John Nelson is a 3rd generation Native American artisan. In the latter years of his designing, he teamed with Nakai Trading Company and produced a wide range of pieces. He is renowned as one of the very best Navajo Lapidarist ever. But as with all great silversmiths, he has excelled in production of all types of jewelry. As a final note: Navajo jewelry is highly sought after and a valuable investment. You can actually wear it! Today not only Navajo, but authentic Native American Indian Jewelry is some of the most popular silver jewelry worldwide. Be the proud owner of this vintage Native American treasure. This amazing necklace will surely be a wonderful addition to your collection while increasing in value-a highly collectible piece which will be the pride and envy of your neighbors, family and friends!
