Heavily Stamped Cuff By Douglas Etsitty Hand Made Sterling Silver Super Nice
Douglas Etsitty is a Navajo smith who specializes in Sterling bracelets which show a repeated stampwork which is intended to create an eye-dazzling effect. He comes from a long line of noted and acclaimed family of silversmiths. This is a classic style of Navajo bracelet which is done with relatively light-gauge silver. The reason for using lighter material is to keep down the cost and create a bracelet which is both lightweight and has good flex so that its size can be adjusted. At the same time, the Sterling is bent to create a convex surface and bending the silver in this way increases its tensile strength and makes it more durable and much less prone to damage. Convex bracelets are comfortable and ride the wrist very well because the two edges of the cuff create lines of contact with the wrist and allow the bracelet to fit relatively loosely without flopping around. Because the inside of the bracelet is concave, such bracelets also allow air to reach the wrist and, therefore, do not cause undue perspiration in spite of their greater width. Whether you keep such a bracelet polished to a high shine which it is now, or “let it go” and allow the tarnish to creep up out of the stampwork and overtake the surface, it will look great over time and be extremely comfortable. By using a polishing cloth you can maintain the shine, but dont use liquid polish because it will leave residue in the stamp work. A jeweler’s cloth or old t-shirt should do the trick. This has a good amount of flex to it already and there’s some “give” in putting it on and taking it off–and that’s no problem and normal. Hallmarked “Douglas Etsitty” and stamped “Sterling” near the terminal. It measures 2 1/4 across and weighs 26.1 grms. Uniform width of cuff: 3/4″ Terminal to terminal outside circumference: 6 1/4″ Gap: 1″ Total inside circumference (not including gap) 5 7/8″ This bracelet can easily be adjusted in size by 1/4 or more. I absolutely love this artist’s work. I have had and seen many of his pieces that are just so stunningly beautiful. This cuff is gender free but considering its size and style I would consider this a ladie’s cuff. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
