Presenting an outstanding museum quality Sterling Silver cuff bracelet from the renowned silversmith V. (possibly Violet) Nez featuring two huge Blue Moon Turquoise cabochons, each measuring 50.0mm tall. Each gemstone is set-in custom-made bezels and are embellished with a pair of applique Squash blossom flowers and prayer feathers along with silver drop beads, twisted wire rope and distinctive file and chisel details. The shoulders feature two broad prayer feather fans, one with a deliberate imperfection on one of the feathers, a clear indication that this piece had significant importance to the artist and not originally intended for commercial sale. The Diné (Navajo) people are deeply spiritual and believe that only the Great Spirit can create anything with perfection. (See Photos).
