Pauline Benally, Navajo - Sterling
Paula says - "A unique 5-stone bracelet crafted by Navajo artist Pauline Benally. The five blue turquoise stones are set in serrated bezels inside a shadowbox which highlights them and also protects them, as they are flush with the surface of the silver framework or slightly recessed. Gorgeous hand tooling and stamping. Unique, comfortable and stylish wedge ends."
WHAT IS A SHADOWBOX?
Shadowbox is an overlay design technique where there is space between the top and bottom layers of sterling silver creating a 3-dimensional shadow effect. The bottom layer is often darkened to enhance the shadowbox effect.
Turquoise is associated with the sky,
and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is
believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise
can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
