Jerrold Tahe’s work maintains the high reputation of his family for substantial, handmade silver bracelets with deep stamping: his mother is Nora Tahe, his stepfather is Emerson Bill, and his sister is Elvira Bill, all noted for these qualities.
Here, thick silver, deep, deep stamping, texture, and some overlay work, create a precise and pleasingly symmetrical design.
Stamping on heavy silver, like this, takes strength, but precision, too. Expertise is needed, as well as artistry.
Large rosettes, small rounds, decorative wing-like forms, and more, create a decorative pattern, accentuated by judicious darkened and brushed finishes.
Rugged beauty and the larger wrist size make this cuff an ideal piece for a man, but it really is for anyone who likes it, and whom it fits.
