In Native American jewelry, cluster work is an extremely laborious process due to the time and skill required by the artisan to hand-cut their gemstones.
This arranged cluster bracelet is crafted in the traditional wagon wheel design and features over 50 teardrop stones radiating from a central cabochon. Acquired in the Gallup region of New Mexico, this contemporary piece of wearable art showcases the unmatched lapidary skills of Native American artisans.
