Silver and Turquoise
Paula says - "Seven beautiful turquoise stones set concho style on a leather band. You will need to punch holes in the leather to fit your wrist. You can remove or slide the turquoise stones to suit your wrist. Bracelets of this style and quality are very hard to find.

Why isn't this item called Native American?
The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
