An absolutely amazing stone graces this one of a kind leather and sterling silver cuff. The large stone is Bamboo Mountain Turquoise and features gorgeous teal blues and greens with thick veins of rusty brown matrix. It is encircled by a heavy, castellated bezel with a hammered outside frame that sits on an oxidized back plate. The distressed leather cuff was created from a vintage leather belt and is a rich, coffee brown color with a tooled wheat stalk pattern in the middle that is flanked by an unusual floral pattern along the outer edges. The leather is buttery soft from lots of prior use. This statement leather cuff fastens with a button stud closure and will fit a smaller wrist in the 6 1/4" range. A stunning piece of wearable art!

Rich leathers, hand-forged sterling silver, and natural gemstones form an irresistible partnership in these extraordinary heirloom cuff bracelets! Most of the one-of-a-kind cuff centerpieces are exclusively designed and created by Jill Judd of Roca Jewelry Designs, while others feature antique, "dead pawn" jewelry pieces handcrafted by the Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi Indians. We at Roca Jewelry Designs search high and low for the finest of stones to incorporate into our cuff centerpieces as well as for special, vintage Native American-made jewelry items (bolos, rings, pendants, etc.) to repurpose into unusual focal adornments.
To create the cuff portion of our bracelets, we painstakingly source, recycle, and refurbish vintage leathers from wherever we can find them! Old western belts with wonderfully worn, intricately tooled designs are used for many of the larger cuffs, while smaller bracelets are created using well-used, reconditioned reins and harness leathers. Each handmade leather cuff bracelet possesses its own distinctive character and seems to tell its own unique story - no two are alike, nor can they be replicated!
