A sleek cuff that is the “little brother” of this artist’s wider cuff, with a similarly resplendent stone.
Tim studied with the great Chalmers Day, and has been known for creating fine overlay designs, like his mentor.
This minimalist, modern design is a departure for Tim, and a beautiful one.
Glamorously simple, polished silver is decorated only with a chiseled double line, set at one edge of the cuff.
Cantilevered over the opposite edge of the cuff, is a gorgeous, Bisbee turquoise.
The town of Bisbee, in southeastern Arizona, was a notable copper mine, which is why the turquoise, so coveted, from this area is celebrated for its intense blue hue, and maroon -colored matrix.
No more turquoise is mined there, as the mine has been shut down.
That has made Bisbee turquoise with the best blue hue – like this one – even more precious.
The broad-toothed, hand-cut bezel that holds the splendid stone echoes the linear decoration on the cuff.
All eyes are, therefore, directed to the exceptional turquoise.
Mirror-bright silver and brilliant blue turquoise, ornamented with its richly hued matrix, make a contemporary bracelet that is a stylish, splendid eye-catcher.
Refined silver work supports the stone, which is worth the price of the bracelet, all by itself.
