Bracelet question..

I have come upon a Bear Claw Torquise Bracelet that is stamped Sterling. In addition it is engraved with Julia Etsitty.

It is a beautiful piece with 5 torquise stones and measures about 2 1/2 inches across at one part of the bracelet and narrows to approx. 1 inch wide.

Question is whom is Julia Etsitty as I can not locate any info on that name. When / where was something like this made. Is this of Indian background?

Thanks much for any info.

Re: Bracelet question..

I would suggest checking your local library for books on Silver Hallmarks of the Southwest. I believe there are at least 2 rather large books that cover this field. I am not familiar with Julia Etsitty and she could well be an American Indian. Good luck in your search and get back to us with your results.

Hi Dave! Not sure if you still own this bracelet. I have a gorgeous bracelet by Julia as well and have tried to find info about her. Do you happen to have a picture of the bracelet. I can send you a pic of the one I have. It would just be great to see more of her work.
