Description

Tim uses only the finest materials in creating his jewelry. Each piece is unique and beautiful.

This is a perfectly balanced sterling silver cuff with a beautiful natural Kingman turquoise cabochon nestled securely atop in a hand-made bezel. Each side of the cuff features highly polished overlaid plant designs. The cuff weighs 63 grams – a nice comfortable and secure weight to wear anytime. Because the bezel with the cabochon is set separately on top, the cuff may be adjusted slightly without affecting security and stability. The gorgeous natural Kingman cab tapers from ½” at the top to ¼” at the bottom and is 1” in length. The bezel extends approx. 1/8” beyond the cuff on each side of the top of the cuff. The bezel is quite substantial and very secure.

Tim draws all of his designs free-hand on the silver, and allows the silver and the other materials that he is using to guide his creative process developing the ideas that he sees in his mind. Tim’s award-winning jewelry is considered “pueblo style” featuring intricate silver overlay work with traditional motifs. He incorporates beautiful natural turquoise into his designs.
