Large Leather Cuff with Turquoise and Sterling Silver - Vintage Leather - Polychrome Turquoise Bracelet - Handmade
A large, colorful turquoise stone is featured in this one of a kind handmade leather cuff bracelet. The large stone is a lovely specimen of Polychrome Turquoise that features a swirling mixture of apple greens and ocean blues interspersed with a web of brown and black matrix. The gorgeous stone is set in sterling silver with a wide, plain bezel on top of an oxidized backplate. The dark, chocolate brown leather cuff was created from a reconditioned vintage leather belt with a subtle texture and darkened edges. Soft and supple from lots of use, the leather also possesses a wonderful, worn patina. Fastening with a button stud closure, this turquoise cuff bracelet will fit a small wrist that measures in the 6" to 6 1/8" range. The simple design and rich colors in this unique leather cuff are stunning!

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!
