1890 - 1900 Silver & Turquoise Cuff

Navajo

About The 1890 - 1900 Silver & Turquoise Cuff

It was made with special meaning for a young woman and worn in the last 10 years of the 19th century. The automotible had not invaded the southwest. Plank roads (where there were roads) were made for wagon travel so the wheels wouldn't sink into the sand.

People did their work by sunlight and the flame of an oil lamp or candles. People were also smaller then because life was scratched from the earth, one season to the next, both for Indians and anglos alike in the southwest.  The railroad had just been put through Arizona from San Francisco and was making its way across the United States. The Civil War had ended, but the country was still in tatters.  The Gold Rush of 49 was still feeding the dreams of a few pioneers. The remainder was land rush residue.

This carefully made, once prized possession of a young Indian woman has survived some intense history--traveling through generations to be the treasured ornament of another spirited young woman's wrist.

Extremely unusual evenly divided stone denotes sky and earth with the blue color representing sky, the brown matrix, earth. Original shape of the bracelet indicates its was worn on the left wrist, earth side down toward the hand. The stone is no accident. It has an almost landscape picture look about it.
