A sleekly contemporary cuff, inlaid with chunks of lovely stones, that follow the asymmetrical, tapered form of the silver.
This jeweler is known for working in ingot silver, hand hammering the brick of metal to the flat thickness and shape desired.
You can see some faint evidence of the hammering, even on the beautifully smooth finish of the piece.
Lovely pieces of deepest blue lapis, rich red, natural coral, and azure turquoise, that looks like the tropical sea, are set in a geometric, tapered band across the center.
Each stone was hand cut by the artist.
The stones stand up from the silver base, and follow its graceful shape. A simple, but strikingly individual design, using traditional methods and materials.
Yes, lapis is not really traditional, but it has been used for many decades, now, so – almost. And it fits right in with the contemporary look of this handsome cuff.
A little bit old-time; a little bit right now; and a lot terrific – even the price.
