Stunning Vintage Navajo Sterling Silver 14k Gold Bear Cuff Bracelet Jack Tom | J For Sale

Up for sale is a vintage Navajo sterling silver and 14k gold healing bear cuff bracelet by Native American silversmith Jack Tom.

Jack Tom was born in 1948 at Keams Canyon, Arizona. He began making jewelry in 1971.

In 1979, while working on the railroad, Jack was struck by lightning. He returned home to his father, a Medicine Man, who performed a Shooting Way ceremony. This restored Jack’s health and harmony. Therefore, he uses a lot of lightning patterns in his jewelry. His great-grandmother was Hopi so he uses Hopi patterns as well as the traditional Navajo designs. He also incorporates Navajo rug patterns and Anasazi patterns in his work. He believes the “Old Ones” left their designs for others (him) to use.

Formerly married to Mary Tom, with whom he collaborated on their beautifully executed jewelry, Jack and Mary lived on the western edge of the Navajo reservation and also collaborated on cheering on their children in athletic and academic achievements. They worked in all sterling, but also enjoyed combining gold with silver.

They are no longer married, but each continues to create wonderful pieces on his and her own.

The cuff will fit a smaller sized wrist and has an end to end inner circumference of 4 3/4",an opening of 1", is 1 3/16" wide and weighs 68.4g. The inside of the cuff is stamped with "sterling 14k" and the maker's initials, JT.
