A good friend of mine found this exquisite silver colored metal bracelet in a thrift store being sold very inexpensively. I've collected many types of vintage Sterling Silver necklaces, rings and bracelets over the years and most all of them at a minimum have the words Sterling or "925" which give evidence that they are truly Sterling Silver. This one has only the maker's mark "JM" which I believe indicates that it was made by the Navajo artisan James Mason. I found only a few other Silver bracelets made by this artist and am now curious whether this is indeed Sterling and if so why it wasn't marked as such. I'm likely going to purchase this from my friend and will likely not sell it but would be interested to learn whether this is indeed Sterling Silver.
As you might be able to see this cuff has a wealth of detail in the many designs which the artist included on it. I also love the color of the turquoise and I was lucky that my friend had found this at that estate sale. I've basically stopped going to thrift stores and when I do go am much more picky about what I purchase.
