Joey Allen, Navajo
Sterling Silver and Turquoise
Ketoh (Bowguard) Leather Cuff

NBK04 - $525 plus s/h       

Paula says - "Ketohs are very adjustable. You can punch more holes in the leather to make the cuff smaller and then either overlap the leather or cut off the excess. To make the cuff larger you can use the laces provide to open up the cuff or you can add longer laces if necessary.

"We use the term "wrist" when talking about size but since ketohs are so wide, they actually fit up onto the lower portion of the forearm, so you will need to take that into consideration.

Size   
Tied as shown it will fit an 8" wrist but you can adjust the fit per Paula's comments above.
