What thickness was the twist bracelet in the Horse Whisperer?

Hi Paula,
I was wondering what the thickness is that is used for smaller male wrists for the classic twist. Do you have any idea of the diameter for the one actually worn on the horse whisper?      Thanks,Brendan

Hi Brendan,
As far as what would be appropriate for a small male wrist – it is completely a matter of personal preference – some people that are tiny wear the thickest bracelets and others want them to be super thin.  That’s why we offer a variety of widths from 1/8″ to 1/2″ in diameter. 1/8″ diameter is shown directly below and 1/2″ is below that.

I’d say 3/16” or 1/4” would be good for a small male wrist but that is just my opinion. Here is a 3/16″.
Judging by what we can see in the movie, I’d say Robert Redford was wearing a 1/4” or 5/16″ thick twist.  This is a 5/16″ below.

What can you tell me about the artist and significance of the two twist bracelets I just purchased?

Hello Paula

Just received my 2 twist bracelets in the mail and they are amazing. They far exceeded my expectations and I am one happy customer. Is there anything you can tell me about the artist and area the bracelet is made? Also is there any special significance to the design of the bracelet. I am giving one to my wife for our anniversary and would like to dazzle her with some information about. Thanks again and please pass on my thanks to all involved.

Hi Matt,
The two bracelets you purchased were made by the Tahe family, a Navajo family noted for years for their sterling silver bracelets and notably the twists. We’ve purchased twist bracelets made by husband and wife teams Verna and Franklin Tahe and by Benny and Elaine Tahe. They live in New Mexico.
As far as significance to the design, they have been a traditional bracelet for many years and as far as we know, just an entwining of two different sterling silver pieces into one, so a nice choice for an anniversary.
They also have had a resurgence in popularity as Robert Redford wore one in the movie “The Horse Whisperer”.
