Pre-Columbian Hammered Cuff Bracelet

Long before the arrival of the Europeans and others, Native people of Latin America had mastered many metallurgical techniques, including mining, hammering, and casting gold to produce jewelry, ornaments, masks, and other items. Our cuff is adapted from a pair of arm bands found in the Sin? River region of Columbia that date to AD 500-1000. Brightly colored strands of cotton yarn, decorated with feathers and gold disks, would have been used to lace up the arm band.
