This leather cuff bracelet features an amazing sterling silver centerpiece that I created using a Hubei turquoise stone. The large teardrop shaped stone is a mottled mixture of dark brown, mustard yellow, and minty green. The hefty stone is set in a tiny sawtooth bezel surrounded by a thick, twisted rope border on top of plain back plate. Impressively large, the centerpiece measures 2 1/4" in length and about 1 3/8" in width! The rich coffee brown leather cuff was created from a section of reconditioned vintage belt leather that features a very worn stamped design and rich patina. It is buttery soft and is very supple from lots of prior use. This one of a kind turquoise cuff bracelet fastens with a button stud closure and will fit a medium wrist that measures in the 6 1/2" range. Big and bold with beautiful earthy colors!

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!
