    I've bought this bangle, certainly more value than his 52 grams scrap silver, is it old (70's-80's)?
    I've found pictures but without more interest on Pinterest, not really what interest me about the maker.

    Benally is a Navajo (Native American) name and there are many silversmiths with surname Benally, but I can't find a P. Benally.
    Late 70s-80s would be my guess. And as you thought, worth more than scrap value.;)
    The coral could be Mediterranean, favoured by Southwestern Native American silversmiths. A search term to find something similar would be Navajo sterling coral shadowbox cuff bracelet.

    Exactly what I've found with my single google search, I suppose you make a false writing Any Jewelry, this is the first occur but without more things about him, it's a lot of Pinterest things without interest in place of a single biography…
    I've found a Pamela too but it's totally different in style and design.
    And with a link sent to me I've found a similar one here with an indicative price, just to put it on ebay now.;)

    Internet searches can be too taxing on my brain when it comes to certain things. Besides, you mentioned you had already done that, so I assumed that base was covered.:)
    I looked in my Native American jewellery books instead, which don't have the recent silversmiths. Pauline seems to be too recent for me.;)

    Note to self: Don't help with recent NA jewellery.

    nonsense! You said you couldn't find a P Benally, not that P Benally didn't exist! (so I wouldn't call that wrong info or anything!) Your posts are always helpful =))

    Here is another similar one! (Maybe you already saw it) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sterling-S...acelet-by-Pauline-Benally-1-5-W-/192046647658

    Thanks Patd and Kimbert.:kiss:
    That is what I thought.:):kiss: And I thought my suggestion for possible further search terms would be helpful.
    This is not the first unsollicited sneer Lecollect gave me, so I can only assume he doesn't appreciate my help, for some reason. Not my favourite style of communicating, so it is better if I don't try to help him anymore.

    But thank you to the others for the likes and the vote of confidence.:happy:

    @Any Jewelry .... maybe....he means, that he thinks your information is incorrect , because his search did not turn up any corroboration...or evidence which confirms or supports a statement,.........

    Like Johnny said.....bad translation..!

    On the other hand.....if you think this Swiss member has it out for you..... either bare your fangs :punch: ....or leave him alone....:meh::stop:

    There are so many other members who need and / or enjoy your help..... that there's lots more to do around here ! & you do it so well !! :kiss:;);)
