After fitting to a 6 1/2" wrist, the excess leather has been trimmed.
Paula says - "Clear turquoise cabochons set concho style on a leather band. You can punch more holes in the leather to make it fit a larger wrist or you can remove or slide the turquoise stones for a smaller fit. 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.
