I love turquoise and am especially inspired by our Native American artisans. My style tends toward a "less is more" approach to design. So when I saw this irregular shaped Evans Turquoise stone I knew I had to design a piece that celebrates its robin's egg blue beauty and simplicity.
I created a wavy patterned bezel with dainty beaded silver to frame the 1" x 7/8" inch Evans turquoise cabochon. The entire bezel setting measures 1-3/8" x 1-1/8" at its widest and longest points. It floats on a sturdy double cuff bracelet made of 12 gauge sterling silver that is tapered and soldered at the ends. The ends are smoothed and polished, like the rest of the cuff, for beauty and comfort.
Cuff measures 5-1/2" end to end with 1-1/8" opening. Fits most Small to Large wrists, as it is slightly adjustable.
I treated the setting with a dark patina to show off the exquisite blue turquoise even more. It is finished with our Be A MaGiK LaMP genie's lamp quality hallmark on the back.
