Paula says -

"This simple, classic coup pattern is very appealing. The bracelet is made of thick stock and is substantial (note the weight).

"On the inner surface of the bracelet is beautiful stampwork that further signifies the artist's interest in detail and quality. Inside stamping also serves a practical purpose as it enhances the comfort."

Fish tail ends, those that fan out a bit, add to wearing comfort.

Coup

Coup - comes from the French and is pronounced "coo". The dictionary definition of coup is a successful stroke, act, or move; a clever action or accomplishment. To an Indian, coup usually mean "war count". But coup is also thought of as an "honor count" or measure of bravery.

Coup can range from a well-spoken word, an honorable deed, stealing an enemy's horse, to a slap or strike with a stick to killing and scalping an enemy.

Western gunfighters also used a system of marking coup by carving notches in the handle of their guns for every man they killed.
Indian coup is counted and kept track of by making marks on a stick or bow or personal adornments or painting marks on one's horse. Feathers were given for coup and were used singly in the hair, on staffs or in bonnets. Bear claws were also given as coup to be used in necklaces.
