A fabulous turquoise stone is showcased in the amazing centerpiece of this handmade leather cuff bracelet. The round stone is Qingu Turquoise that features an earthy mix of colors including oranges, browns, greens, and light blue. Beautifully set in sterling silver, the stone is surrounded by a wide, plain bezel encircled by a second, saw tooth bezel hand fabricated from PMC silver. The piece is centered on an oxidized back plate. The golden brown leather cuff was created from a reconditioned, vintage leather belt that features an unusual tooled geometric pattern and rich patina. This turquoise cuff bracelet fastens with a button stud closure and will fit a medium wrist that measures in the 6 1/2" range. Wonderful textures and colors along with a simple but powerful design makes this cuff a stunner!

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!
