I love working with turquoise. It has a very down to earth look and feel. And of course, it looks best in sterling silver which is one of my favorite materials to work with.
The cuff in the picture uses a natural piece of Turquoise from the Fox Mine and is available for purchase. The cuff is very solid with an 8mm wide band which is 2mm thick. The texture is hand applied and oxidized to bring out the pattern.
Interested in your own cuff? this is just one of many that I have done in the past and most of them were custom orders. Please contact me if you'd like to have your own cuff custom made.
About My Work:
I personally handmade everything in my shop. This means that I start out with raw materials and hammer, forge and file them into the shapes that you see. I use traditional bench techniques that have been passed down for ages among silversmiths. The gemstones that I use are always natural, never glass, fake, lab created or cheap imitations. I DO NOT buy pre-made rings and simply snap stones into them. This is actually a common practice for many jewelry now so beware of shopping from a jeweler that does not offer custom work as they probably do not make the jewelry themselves.
I will always veer towards quality rather than quantity. I rarely place things on sale. If I do, it is because I want to see a piece find a home rather than collecting dust in my display. Since I do actually make everything by hand I am more than able to answer any questions about my work, or also perform custom requests of modifications. I am self taught and I love my work, I enjoy the creative process of making jewelry by hand, and creating miniature works of art. More than that, I love enabling my customers to find exactly what they are looking for. Thank you for supporting quality hand made work.
