This fabulous sterling silver turquoise bracelet was made by the late Navajo silversmith, Kirk Smith. Kirk's distinctive old pawn style jewelry is among the most sought-after Native American jewelry in the southwest.

This bracelet features a large genuine turquoise stone set in a 5-wire old pawn style silver cuff covered with applied repousse & beaded silverwork. The oval is set in a fancy filed bezel on a five wire shank cuff with the old pawn finish that Kirk Smith is known for. Brand new in perfect condition. Stamped sterling and has Kirk Smith's hallmark on the inside of one of the bracelet's terminals. Kirk Smith's style combines the best of the genuine old pawn pieces - the careful craftsmanship, traditional design, and those old style solid stone settings. His work is distinctive, and many know when they see a Kirk Smith piece who the artist is without even looking at the hallmark. Kirk Smith died tragically on Monday, September 17, 2012. At the time of his death, Kirk had arguably replaced his mentor, the late Harry Morgan, as the reigning practitioner of classic revivalist Navajo design.
