Related to famed silversmith Jennifer Curtis and her late father, Thomas, Pete has the family's deft hand with silver and here turns it to a ruggedly handsome, traditional, Navajo-style bracelet. However, this is tradition with elegant updating in style and technique, both.As in the past, a special turquoise is set in the center, in this case, a high-quality, natural, Royston turquoise set high and proud in a hand-cut, bold silver bezel. Also following time-tested design, the stone and other elements are centered squarely on the cuff. The stone is a rounded -off square, signaling its sought-after hardness. On either side, a row of tiny little domes transition into a double vee-shape of stamped silver, with a little circle on the ends.What is modern and personal to this artist is the cuff. a good heft of silver is smooth and polished on the inside, for comfort, but deeply textured and somewhat darkened on the outside. The vertical, irregular pattern resembles falling rain – a sign of very good luck. Instead of being a flat band of silver, the cuff is also slightly concave, and tapered a bit toward the ends – another modern touch of the the maker's.With the large turquoise, bold texture, and a somewhat larger wrist size, this bracelet would be equally striking on a man or a woman. Classic with a twist, it will attract lots of admiring attention.
