Small-wristed jewelry lovers, rejoice! You, alone, can wear – and flaunt – this exquisite bracelet by Ted Draper Jr.
Known for his impressionistic paintings, as much as he is honored for beautiful jewelry, this multi-talented artist is also a community leader, advocate for Native artists, and dedicated basketball coach.
And his father was one of the heroic Navajo Code Talkers, who helped to win the war in the Pacific, during WWII!
In a sturdy gauge of silver, this cuff features an all-over, beaten texture with embedded bits of 14-karat gold, sparkling here and there.
The effect is sumptuous; fit for a queen.
Adding to the majestic opulence, a broad bezel of gold elevates and embraces a stunning, super-fabulous, domed oval of natural Number 8 turquoise.
One of the most coveted and rarest of Nevada turquoise, true Number 8 has a lacy web of matrix – as here – and a celestial blue color – as here.
Everything about this bracelet is dazzling: the workmanship and style, the luxurious finish of the metals, and, especially, that exceptional stone.
This artist brings his painter’s eye for color and contrast to his jewelry, as well.
Beautiful in any setting, the gorgeous turquoise is set off to perfection by that broad band of gold; like water, reflecting sun-gilded clouds.
Elegantly understated in its magnificence, this bracelet happily accessorizes everything from jeans and tees to cocktail dresses.
Enjoy its remarkable beauty every day!
