Johnny Mike Begay Silver Rail Bracelet
Kenneth Begay was a noted Navajo jeweler who worked at the White Hogan Gallery at Scottsdale. He brought in his brother, Johnny Mike, to work with him. Kenneth is credited with inventing rail bracelets of all types, but it was Johnny Mike who expanded this style. This bracelet is one of several he made, most of which are much less dramatic. The dimensions is 3 inches wide at its widest point and 1-1/2 at its narrowest point; the inside diameter is 5-1/2 inches with a 1-1/4 inch gap for a total inside diameter of 6-3/4 inches.
Johnny Mike Begay passed away in 1976.
