Johnny Mike Begay Silver and Turquiose Watch 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 watch bracelet has two turquoise cabochons. It is 1-1/2 inches wide; the inside diameter is 5-3/4 inches with a 1-1/2 inch gap for a total inside diameter of 6-1/4 inches. The watch bracelet has never been worn.
Johnny Mike Begay passed away in 1976.
