Henry Sam works in Sterling mostly without using stones. His stampwork is traditional and he often uses repousseé forms and appliqueésto decorate his pieces. He most often applies a brushed finish to his pieces before oxidizing them to give an old-style patina.
This is a pretty bracelet done in the style of yesteryear. Crossed arrow appliqueés are overlaid on the split cuff of this Traditional Revival piece. This is set with an oval of petrified wood in a smooth bezel with the petrified wood further complemented by raindrops and scrollwork.
Hallmarked HS in capital letters and stamped Sterling inside. This hallmark resembles that of Herman Smith, but the letters in Henry Sam's hallmark are smaller in size.
