A magnificent, chunky gemstone is featured in this one of a kind, handmade leather cuff bracelet. The huge teardrop shaped stone is a gorgeous, hefty specimen of Violet Hubei Turquoise. This amazing stone features a medley of colors that include olive greens, grey blues, ivory whites, and rusty browns. The pattern in the stone is so unusual - like the roiling waves of the ocean! Set in sterling silver with a wide plain bezel, the stone is surrounded by a lightly hammered bead border. The rich, leather cuff is a dark, golden brown and was created from a reconditioned vintage leather belt that features an interesting tooled pattern and very distressed texture. Soft and supple from lots of use, the leather also possesses a wonderful, aged patina. Fastening with a button stud closure, this unique leather cuff bracelet will fit a wrist that measures in the 6 1/2" - 6 3/4" range. This one of a kind cuff is an absolute treasure!

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!
