A stunning stone is featured in this unique handmade leather cuff bracelet. The round stone is known as Thunder Cloud and is found in the turquoise mines in China. It has a high profile and is a marvelous mix of colors that include mustard yellow, bone white, and grey with a bold streak of black. The gorgeous stone is set in sterling silver with a plain bezel which is encircled by a thick, flattened twisted wire border. The dark brown leather cuff was created from reconditioned vintage bridle leather that possesses a wonderfully worn suppleness and matte patina. Fastening with a button stud closure, this turquoise leather cuff bracelet will fit a wrist that measures in the 6 1/2" range. Earthy colors and a simple design lend an exquisitely organic appeal to this one of a kind cuff.

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!
