Paula says -

"Oh boy ! As a collector of storyteller bracelets, I loved when these came in the door. . . it is so rare to find such nice link bracelets and the images on the storyteller panels are really crisp and unique. A lot of hand work goes into making these wearable works of art. Enjoy !"

Each bracelet has six panels showing the story of Navajo life. Panel scenes include home (the hogan), Monument Valley, the sheep, weaving, the wagon, horse, and more. The contrast is excellent between the background and the scenes.

These bracelets are made of thick stock with durable hinges, a secure clasp and a chain guard. Measurements shown below are the inside circumference with the bracelet latched.

What is Overlay?

Overlay pieces are made of two layers of sterling silver. The top layer has a cutout design. The solid bottom layer (background to the cutout) is usually accented for contrast. The Navajo silversmiths oxidize the bottom layer which darkens it. Hopi silversmiths oxidize and etch the background (texturize it) with hashmarks. The cutout top layer is placed over the bottom layer and the two pieces are "sweated" together, that is, heated so that they become one. This is a very difficult skill to master.
