Cherry says -

"I acquired a 40-year-old storyteller bracelet that was a simple storyline of a day in the life of a Navajo and his horse. It is such a favorite of mine that we've looked long and hard for something similar to offer in our store. These old style storyteller bracelets are just what we were hoping for."

Paula says -

"Modeled after the very vintage style bracelets of 50 years ago and older, Francis Tabaha has made tiny pieces that he has placed along a story line which we can certainly relate to:

  • work the horse,
  • dry the saddle blanket,
  • go to the house to relax
  • enjoy the beautiful scenery.

"If this is not the story of a horse owner's life, then I don't know what is ! We immediately fell in love with these bracelets. With the oxidized background the silver elements in the scene really pop ! We are offering several bracelets, each with a different scene and edge design so you can choose the one that appeals to you."

What is Overlay?

Overlay pieces are made of two layers. The bottom layer is a solid sterling silver piece. The top layer has a cutout design. The cutout is placed over the bottom layer and the two pieces are "sweated" together, that is heated so that they become one.

The bottom layer (background to the cutout) is usually accented. The Navajo silversmiths oxidize the bottom layer which darkens it. Hopi silversmiths oxidize and etch the background (texturize it) with hashmarks.
