This signed Zuni bracelet is beautifully balanced, a slim cuff with a big presence. The cuff is a flat, narrow band of coin silver. Nine pale blue and green turquoise stones have been cut and polished into slightly peaked diamond shapes, then bezel set within rings of a silver overlay. Overlay is a technique in which a carved layer of polished silver is applied to a layer of oxidized silver creating a shadow box effect of contrasting light and dark. Silver beads sit at each end of the row of stones. The interior of the cuff is signed "A. Cachini" for the Zuni silversmith of the same name. Circa 1970.
How can you tell if a cuff bracelet is your size? Measure the top of your wrist from side to side and compare with the inside measurement of the cuff. If this bracelet does not fit easily on your wrist it is not your size. Please do not bend or force the cuff, either the cuff or your wrist may be damaged.
