Description

A beautiful study in turquoise and texture.

This beautiful cuff has three wonderfully textured free form sterling silver wires secured with Mercury dimes folded around the ends to create a terminus.  The center of the cuff has two triangular shaped textured bezels with five different types of outstanding natural turquoise. These stones are intermixed with additional pieces of coral, purple, petrified wood and magnesite. All of the stones have been expertly laid in a cobblestone pattern, which requires the utmost skill in being able to place each one against the next resulting in a very tight fit. Only a very skilled jeweler can achieve this type of art.

Condition: Excellent – original condition – new.
Provenance: Purchased from the artist.
