      Not sure it's Mexican. It's a dragon, and those are dragon scale links. The head is holding the sphere of wisdom, I believe, which is the locking mechanism. Look up Miao Zu articulated Dragon/Ouroboros Bracelet. Many come from Tibet. It's a beauty - and the lock is really unusual!

      Miao are also known as the Hmong people. The swirls are sometimes called Dragon's breath. Cool piece!

      Was it advertised as an articulated fish scale bracelet?
    9. epson233 epson233, 5 years ago
      no you can check it out on ebay -- i was the buyer -- here is the item number that you can place on the ebay search

      231786314893

      it is mexican and you will see the markings when you do the search on ebay

      Thanks - I had a look. Is that "ASAHS" under "MEXICO"? Interesting! You got it for not much more than the scrap price.

      It's gorgeous.
    11. epson233 epson233, 5 years ago
      no it is .925 and yes i checked the scrap price -- i was not interested in the price of silver i was interested in the lock -- as you can see on my postings i will make and do anything just to challenge myself -- this is a half doll that i made

      thanks for your input wishing you happy new year in health, happiness and all the best in the coming years

      Hi again - I took a photo of the photo with the marks, enlarged it and had another look. I definitely see last three marks as being "AHS". That would be: AHS as in HECHO EN GUAD. MEXICO.

      Your doll is beautiful!

      thanks efesgirl -- i took another look this morning -- all i am seeing is silver and mexico -- glad you like the half doll -- have a lot of fun making the dress and her outfit

      I hate to belabor the point, but it is a modified bracelet from China. Marks can be easily added to items. I saw these at a Renaissance fair a couple years ago. The person YOU bought it from may not have known either!

      stunning and happy new year Epson!!
    17. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      I guess the final outcome will be known when you finally have the bracelet in your hands. Either way, it's beautiful.
