This leather cuff bracelet features a handmade sterling silver centerpiece with a gorgeous Treasure Mountain turquoise stone. The lovely stone features apple greens and tealy blues with a smattering of black matrix. It is set in a sterling silver sawtooth bezel on a handmade, linen-textured backplate that was created with precious metal clay fine silver. A hand hammered thick wire border finishes the shadow box effect of the piece! The plain black leather cuff was created from a recycled vintage belt. The leather is heavily textured and is soft and supple from lots of prior use. This one of a kind leather cuff bracelet fastens with a button stud closure and will fit a wrist that measures in the 6 1/4" range. This bracelet is unusual with a slightly contemporary feel to it - just fabulous!

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!
