Leather Cuff with Labradorite Gemstone and Sterling Silver - Vintage Recycled Leather - Handmade Labradorite Cuff
An amazing Labradorite stone is the focal point of this unusual, one-of-a-kind leather cuff. The stone features an array of blue and grey colors with stunning "flashes" of gold and green when moved in the light! The irredescent flashes of color are known as labradorescence for which this gemstone is known. The Inuit people of Labrador in Canada explain it best by saying that the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are trapped within Labradorite rocks! The round stone is set in a sterling silver scalloped bezel encircled by a heavy twisted rope detail and a hammered outside frame. The black leather cuff has been created from recycled vintage harness leather that features a lovely worn patina. Fastening with a button stud closure, this leather cuff bracelet will fit a medium wrist that measures in the 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" range. A one of a kind beauty!

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!
