“Following the Sun” Cuff Bracelet. $1,600.

The way of Mother Earth is found in following the sun. Wings braids earth and sun, medicine and light together in three dimensions in this silky hand-scalloped cuff bracelet. The band is solid sixteen-gauge sterling silver, the gracefully flowing edges cut freehand with the filament-thin blade of a jeweler’s saw. Each scalloped curve follows the radiant arc of the hand-stamped border motif, one of sun and crescent moon rising and setting in an alternating braid, linked by deeply stamped motifs of rising medicine. Five flawless hand-wrought repoussé sunbursts trace the center of the band in a gradient of sizes, a big bold burst at the very center, flanked by medium-sized versions, with a small variant at either end. Between each sunburst, eight-pointed stars pay tribute to the sacred directions, three-pronged medicine symbols arrayed above and below. At either end, a sixteen-petaled starburst flower stretches to all the points of the compass, above diagonal directional arrows pointing to open space at each corner. The stampwork is deeply oxidized and the entire cuff buffed to a warm and glowing Florentine finish. Band is 6″ long by 1-3/16″ across at the widest point; the center sunburst is 5/8″ across, the middle ones are 1/4″ across, and the smallest end ones are 3/8″ across (all dimensions approximate).
