Lined distressed deerskin cuff with a silver half dollar and cowrie shells. It was a common practice among Native Americans to use silver coins for jewelry and personal adornment. Cowries were introduced to the American tribes through intercontinental trade networks from the Indian and South Pacific Oceans. Cowries were also used for money by some tribes. The etched mother of pearl buckle is hand sewn in place. A turquoise leather burst is just barely visible surrounding the center piece of this unusual cuff. Will fit 6 to 8 inch wrists.
