About Summer Bracelets
If you are a die hard cuff bracelet wearer like I am, there are several types of Native American sterling silver cuff bracelets that are cooler to wear in summer weather than the traditional solid cuffs.
One is called the spread wire bracelet. It is almost as if the artists has opened up the bracelet to let the wrist breathe !! Ive seen those with 3 and 5 bands (and matching rings) but the sky is the limit.
Another type is what I call the mesh bracelet. Instead of a solid band, the bracelet is made of interwoven strands of sterling silver that results in an open weave, allowing air circulation. Many of these are made by the Tahe family, noted Navajo silversmiths.
