Armbands – German Silver
Armbands - German SilverThese Armbands German Silver are the perfect addition to your traditional regalia! The artist made these armbands by cutting down and reshaping a Gustoweh band. They feature a punched out and stamped pattern, and can be tied shut with Deerskin Laces. Please note, although the photograph shows that one cuff is missing a tie, we have added a replacement in house. The cuffs measure 10 1/2" long by 1 9/16" wide.
Prior to the arrival of European trade goods, Native Americans adorned their arms with tattoos, quilled cuffs and bracelets made of copper and bone. European traders brought metal, especially silver, that Native Americans used to create armbands. Metal Armbands could be simple, narrow bands or stamped and decorated. Native Americans also made Armbands of beaded leather strips or finger woven wool.
The artist wore these Armbands, so they do show wear. You can polish them up or wear them as is. We are selling these as a pair.
One of a Kind!
