Ruggedly handsome, as befits the work of a professional rodeo cowboy and horse trainer, this bracelet was produced by his alter ego – an award-winning jeweler. Just like the artist, the bracelet embraces two worlds: the traditional and the contemporary. And, befitting the champion he is, the workmanship is flawless; the design is simple, but striking.
A parade of crosses covers the bracelet, interspersed with tiny fluted half-beads. Not specifically religious, the crosses are actually an ancient symbol of the four geographic directions. Usually, it means that the blessings and /or good luck in a piece are meant to spread to the ends of the earth, and to all peoples. The fluted beads represent stars in the sky. The message is not religious, but it is innately spiritual.
Beautiful in its meaning, and beautifully expressed, the bracelet is quietly dramatic with its high contrast between polished and textured, darkened silver. and the stark geometry of the design. Striking on its own, it will also stack well with other bracelets.
Be conservative, and wear it alone, or more assertive and stack it high with others; this cuff will attract attention quietly, but surely. Wear it any way you like, and every day, if you like – it’s that versatile.
