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 :-)
