    Another wonderful San Diego find from the mid-90's is this amazing sterling cuff with inlay bone and fossil wood from Navajo silversmith Jack Woolsey, circa 1960's. At first I thought this was ivory and desert jasper, but help from an etsy seller said mine probably was fossilized bone and wood. The inlays sit 3/16 inch at highest point without a chip or nick. My pictures are not great - it's bright silver and the inlays are from "ivory" color to a mid brown (like in pic 2) -no tarnish.

    I paid $40 - they are quite collectible now around $300.

    Hope you enjoy and any comments welcome :-)

      Bonnie - my wrist is 6.25" x 1-1/8" - it fits because it hasn't been stretched out but I'm very careful when I wear it. Thanks for loving it!

      Ken - thanks yes, I love earth tone colors!

      Thanks friends for loving this cuff: beyemey, aura, kevin, mike, Hel1, Roy and Gudrun :-)

      Nice! I love all those matters together!
    5. valentino97 valentino97, 3 years ago
      Bonnie...I meant that it's 1-1/8" wide LOL.

      Thank you Bijou for your nice comment :-)

      Thanks friends for loving this cuff: Czechglass, Mrstyndal, Kerry and Thomas!

      Ooh! I love it, the inlay work and color combo is beautiful!
      Ivory? It seems to have Schregers lines. :-)
    7. valentino97 valentino97, 3 years ago
      Kyra - I thought it could be ivory too, but the etsy expert said it was bone. Maybe that's the PC diagnosis when one is trying to sell an item. But, this is pre-ban, from the 60's.

      So many nice loves and likes of this cuff: Phil, Fort, Judy, Melanie, Scott, beyemey, geode, crazy and Hunter :-)
