5 3/8 inch inside length, 1 5/8 inch width, 1 1/8 inch opening
With extraordinary silverwork and stamping, this bracelet is indicative of petrified wood pieces of the Depression and World War II. Navajo artists used petrified wood when there was a shortage of turquoise, and would put extra detail into the silver to compensate. Today, access to petrified wood is limited because it is found on federal lands.
