A stunning turquoise stone is featured in this one of a kind handmade leather cuff bracelet. The little round stone is Sonoran Gold Turquoise and is a wonderful medley of colors including green, oatmeal brown, and sky blue. It is set in sterling silver with a scalloped bezel and sits on a hammered back plate of flower petals! The dark brown leather cuff was created from reconditioned vintage bridle leather - horse reins to be specific! Supple and distressed from lots of use, the leather also possesses a wonderfully worn patina. Fastening with a button stud closure, this turquoise leather cuff bracelet will fit a smaller wrist that measures in the 6" range. This would be a fantastic layering bracelet, but it is also lovely when worn by itself!

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!
