This handmade leather cuff bracelet features a beautiful, highly polished stone called Collawood. Collawood is an extremely rare version of petriified wood that comes from Zile, Turkey. It is often characterized by inclusions of copper minerals such as Chrysocolla, Malachite, Azurite , and Turquoise. The colors of this particular stone are primarily rich browns with inclusions of teal greens. The round stone is set in a sterling silver plain bezel surrounded by a twisted rope border on an oxidized back plate. The chocolate brown leather cuff was created from reconditioned vintage bridle leather - horse reins to be specific - with a rich, worn patina. It fastens with a button stud closure and will fit a wrist that measures in the 6 1/2" range. With its rich, dark colors, this gorgeous cuff is versatile and teeming with rustic elegance!

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!
