Unique Claw Bracelet

This 146 gram claw bracelet has a very unique design.  It is new old stock (NOS) from a store that closed about 10 years ago. Other than that, I have no information on its age but based on the rest of the inventory of that store, I would guess 1980 to 2000 or thereabouts.

It is hallmarked STERLING and TN

According to hallmark references, it seems like that could be the hallmark of Navajo artist, Tammy Nelson. It does seem consistent with Navajo style.

Does anyone recognize this work or hallmark?

Hallmark: STERLING TN

Turquoise cabochon set in the claws on the sides

Handmade, stamped sterling silver fetish bear on each side

Heavy three wire frame

Will fit approximately a 7″ wrist

Onyx cabochon is 1 1/2″ x 1 1/8″
