A professional rodeo cowboy, and trainer of horses, this multi-talented gentleman also creates meticulously crafted, award-winning jewelry – in his spare time, it would seem!
This beautiful cuff is studded with natural turquoise in a lovely, clear blue, the color of New Mexico skies.
On the sturdy, tufa-cast silver base, each little square has been carefully cut from natural, Sleeping Beauty turquoise.
Beveled and pillowed, the stones light up the textured, and slightly darkened, silver.
To cut turquoise into sharp angles, as in these squares, it has to be of the highest quality and hardness.
The quality of the stones is matched in the the quality of the silver work: the edges of the cuff are scrupulously hand stamped in a beautifully regular pattern, while the stones are set in polished silver boxes.
Tough and solid silver work, with delicately hued and perfectly formed turquoise; a metaphor for the rodeo-cowboy artist himself; real men are both strong and sensitive.
Lovely to look at, this ravishing bracelet will enhance every outfit, and stack happily with other cuffs, too.
