Navajo silversmiths Carole and Wilson Begay have been making traditional sandcast jewelry for decades. They grew up in a time when it took you days to travel a couple hundred miles, not much supply around, and you just really had to be resourceful to survive. Silver coins would come in trade, with Mexico or the United States, this is when this part of the world was a territory. You could heat the silver and melt it down, so now all you needed was something to pour it into, sandstone. That is how the many early Navajo silversmiths made their work, and it is the tradition Carole and Wilson continues today. This bracelet is a big piece of shined sterling silver surrounding a huge cut of KingmanTurquoise stone. You will love the look this traditional style piece gives you.
