Most of these range from 1/4" to 1" sterling - Native American.

Pic 1: Diverse designs.

Pic 2: My favorites: Deep X w/round stamp mark, Navajo marked Sterling FJ and Feathery waves stamped STERLING.

Pic 3: In foreground - 3-sided stamp work marked Sterling TAHE and a wonderful hand-made pyramid shape "carinated" band w/hand scribed "by brother Augustin Redwin" inside and "yearbook" on outer w/sunburst stamps. (I really love this one.)

On the mallet L-R: 1-Feather waves, 2-Navajo FJ, 3-.75" Sterling TAHE, 4-5/8" w/twisted rope center - no marks. 5-1" shapes look like Alaskan motifs - marked I LECHEN? Los Angeles, 6-X -circle Maibel? Sterling, 7-1" w/2 twisted ropes- Sterling TAH and 8-beautiful shadow? box design marked AJD. It shows up better in pic 1 at the bottom.

I know some of my info is probably wrong. for example the Los Angeles cuff might not be NW native American. The thinnest sheet is the widest #3 - all else are heavy and don't rebend easily. Still I'm nervous to wear them for fear one will fall off.

Any comments or help w/marks is appreciated.

    I wear this type of bracelets all the time and never one has fallen off. If they are so heavy you would notive immediately.
    Here in Europe you don't find the native american ones. But they are neat!

    Yes - we should wear our bracelets! But when you put your jacket on & off sometmes they slip off. I love to wear my favorite jewelry out to hear live music every week. But then I sit there afraid to dance or take some off and put in my purse. It's not that I'm a wild drunk lady but chatting w/friends and moving around the club - I am distracted. I just wear a few at a time when I work - not the full on stack. Aren't they amazing?

    Thank you Moonstonelover! Aren't they nice? The beautiful shiny silver color of the moon! If I said of the sun then they should be gold?! Some very nice examples...I don't think any are sandcast but I do have sandcast brooches and rings that I will post later. I don't think any of these bracelets are older than the 1950's. I know some of them are very valuable and will post info when I can confirm exactly what I have.
