As befits a professional rodeo cowboy and horse trainer, this is a ruggedly fabricated cuff, with darkened silver, stamped along the substantially thick edges.
But, as befits an award-winning jeweler, this bracelet is also charmingly decorative, and dramatic.
With its high contrast between polished and textured, darkened silver, the lovely, flowing design is a graceful counterpoint.
Rope-like twisted silver wire forms four pairs of curly spirals, separated by three applied flowers of raised and polished plain silver.
Tiny dots of stamped silver float above and below, the major design.
This is a marvelous rendition of a traditional theme: water, both flowing and in the form of raindrops, makes the flowers (and all crops) grow. It is a timeless good-luck design.
The delicate applied elements are in complete contrast to the robust base silver; a metaphor for “real men stop and smell the flowers”, maybe?
Echoing the champion he is, in two different realms, the workmanship is flawless; the design is daintily dramatic.
Striking on its own, it will also stack well with other bracelets.
Enjoy this wonderful bracelet, by a wonderful artist.
