The artist has always lived around water (which is scarce and precious on the high desert) and incorporates some reference to it in almost every piece, including this lovely cuff.
Three bars of shimmering sterling silver shimmer and flow, beautifully shaped into graceful curls, like waves, or ribbons.
That in itself would make a memorable bracelet, but the artist has embellished the silver with a stunning, natural Number Eight turquoise.
This is the real thing, a gorgeous example of one of the top most coveted, American turquoise stones.
Notice how it has been cut into a square, with distinct corners. That is a sign of the very hardest, and highest quality turquoise.
The heavenly light blue color, and over-all, delicately webbed matrix, are characteristic of this sought-after turquoise.
It is offset to the side of the cuff, where its rigorous shape contrasts with the curvaceous, flowing lines of the silver.
This serves, in artistic hands, to emphasize both the precious stone, and the contrasting silver forms.
It forms a harmonious, enchanting design, on the wrist.
With that remarkable stone. lovely design, and excellent workmanship, you would think a piece of this quality would be much more expensive.
Luckily for us all, the artist is modest (although not in talent and skill!), and you are virtually paying for the wholesale cost of the stone, alone.
Outstanding in beauty and quality, this bracelet is a remarkable bargain.
