This cuff bracelet was found at an Estate Sale, along with another very similar bracelet, which is also in my shop. Both of these bracelets have very faint markings of what looks like a "Tahe" hallmark. Made by the Tahe family, Navajo Indian jewelry artists of Northern Arizona. This piece was probably made by Verna and Franklin Tahe who were the most active component of the Tahe family, and have been known for years for their sterling silver bracelets and notably the twists

One note about Tahe jewelry goes along with my view of "repurposing, not forgotten"; "The extended Tahe family (Navajo - Arizona, USA) has managed to achieve a very distinct style without making things totally from scratch. They buy various types and gauges of wire and metal sheeting and work them into their final products. By Indian Arts and Crafts federal laws (which can be pretty murky), their jewelry definitely needs to be characterized as handcrafted versus handmade as they utilize prefabricated components and weave them together (sometimes literally)".

This piece is in excellent condition and will be a beautiful addition to your silver jewelry collection.

Thank you for reading the description, most importantly for visiting my shop,
