Product Details


One of the first trade items introduced to Native Americans was the simple wire bracelet. Both men and women avidly bartered for them and can be seen in paintings and old photos wearing sometimes as many as a dozen or more loosely on each arm. When their brass or copper buckets wore out, they salvaged the heavy wire bails to make more bracelets. Like one of the original styles, our bracelets are heavy gauge (approx. 1/8" diameter) and have flared ends.
