“There’s a rainbow round my shoulder” goes the old song.
Now, you can wear a rainbow round your wrist, with this splendid cuff.
A native of Laguna Pueblo, Frank Carrillo is noted for sophisticated, contemporary styles, with flawless inlay and brilliant color.
Perfectly hand formed, with marvelously smooth inlaid stones and perfect silver work, this bracelet is ravishingly typical of his work.
The satiny smooth, inlaid stones are set in a vertical row of vibrant colors, that contrast beautifully with the unembellished borders of glistening silver.
Arranged in subtly graduated sizes, to conform to the shape of the cuff, the band of richly hued stones resembles a rainbow,.
Deep purple sugilite, royal blue lapis and rich red coral, rub shoulders with pink coral, luminous, pale opal, and tender turquoise blue.
The gorgeous stones are natural, as far as we know.
Adding more vibrancy and style, the silver base of the cuff is shaped into concave edges.
Not only does this raise the arc of stones, without having it actually stand above the silver, it allows the plain silver to glitter and gleam with abandon.
A simple design with spectacular effect, this bracelet is a fabulous example of the artist’s vision.
His signature combination of minimalist design, meticulous workmanship and brilliantly arranged, vividly colored stones, is outstanding.
This bracelet’s suave elegance is as at home with jeans, as with uptown wear.
Wear this rainbow, in all sorts of weather, proudly! And be sure to look at the compatible Rainbow Ring, by the same artist, on this website.
