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.
