A thin, open work band is stamped with arrows, rain clouds, rattlesnake jaws and other rocker designs. The interior of the bracelet is marked "Sterling" and with the Bell makers mark. Circa 1960.
Bell Trading Post was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1932 by Jack Michelson and his wife Mildred. They sold southwest style jewelry at various tourist locations in the United States.
