This is a Lakota Sioux war shield. Made of bison back, covered with a brain tanned deer skin painted with natural ocher and depicting the sacred raven of the Lakota. From the crow we see rays of the sun that radiate it and give it strength. Decorated with feathers, horse’s mane and original Murano beads from the mid-1800s. It was bought by a European collector in the Pine ridge reservation, in the 80s. 18.5 inches tall (about 47 cm), check out the last photo to see the dimensions. Certificate of authenticity or any other kind of documents are not included. I managed to put these works together over the years with the help of the network that Ive created from my anthropological studies. Most of the pieces come from European private collections, and many have been part of my personal collection for some time.

Native American made but very Old or New Mexican in style, this is a Super solid, durable cuff that cannot be bent out of shape & lose any integrity in the metal, since it is made of a 16 gauge sterling & for those of you who don’t know what that means, it means it is thick & unbendable!!! Heavier & more solid than any bracelet you may own! The finishing on this is outstanding & has the most beautiful shiny grey tones, being the finish has been’antiqued, so it has an appearance of being vintage & you can be saved from polishing! The right amount of oxidation is left perfectly in certain areas, to highlight the subject. Besides the gorgeous large Sacred Heart in the center, the “Beading” in the design that is placed throughout, helps to make this piece get the phenomenal appearance it has!! It has waves of beading throughout, including around the center heart like a bezel around a stone. One raised cross on top of a cross, per side with an oval “S” pattern framing the cross. Please double click on the photo & the pictures will validate themselves.. Stands 13/4 tall all the way around to the gap opening. Weighs a whopping 4 OUNCES or 115 GRAMS!! Measures in the interior 51/2″ with a 11/16″ gap.. (Please read below on “How to fit a Cuff” before purchasing, if you are not sure) Even though this is very Latin in Style, this is made by Navajo”ELGIN TOM” who makes these exclusively for the Del C. Hallmarked with the same names+Sterling. Comes Boxed & would make a wonderful gift for the woman who loves all things with a “Folk Art, Latin Feel”!!! Please check out more of my Del Corazon Sacred Heart/Guadalupe collection that I have listed.. I also carry a variety of jewelry made by quality artists, along with phenomenal clothing by ROJA here: other items. Please know your wrist size before ordering.. I will answer any questions you have. Please read measurements since photos tend to make items appear larger than actually are…. How to fit a cuff. The best way to get a good fit is to measure a cuff bracelet you already have that fits you well. The total inside circumference is the inside circumference of the bracelet from end to end plus the gap (the distance between the ends)If you don’t have a cuff bracelet , then measure your wrist where you want to wear the bracelet. Cut a strip of paper approximately 8 long and as wide as the bracelet you would like to wear. Wrap the paper around your wrist where you would wear the bracelet. You might secure the paper with a piece of tape to get a better feel of the fit. Remove the paper and measure from the end to the mark for the circumference of your wrist. EXAMPLE: If the inside Circumference end to end is 5″ and the Gap is 1″, the total inside Circumference would be 6″ and would be suitable for a wrist approximately 5 3/4″ to 6 1/4 depending on how tight or loose you like to wear your bracelets. Remember the interior measurement does not change, but the gap can be adjusted, either by yourself or your jeweler, depending on the thickness of the gauge. A cuff should not’roll’ around on your wrist(Too loose), nor should you see flesh hanging over the edge(Too tight) Always put the cuff on above the wrist bone where it is fleshy, then bring it down to wrist. And NEVER “squeeze” to tighten!! You will lose the integrity of the metal & if there are stones, they can loosen.. Rather, turn your wrist over, push down on one end, push down on the other.. Go easy, if the gauge is lighter.. If you are looking down at your wrist, with the bracelet on the arm as if you are wearing it, you should NOT be able to put a finger up under it, If so, It is WAY to big!
