“Planes of Existence” Cuff Bracelet. $1,475. SOLD.

From petaled vines and sweetgrass braids and red willow sacred hoops, whether ascending from earthen netherworlds or sacred springs in stories of emergence, or lowered from the stars in the sky, our peoples have always known that there is no beginning and no end, and that we inhabit multiple planes of existence. Wings brings together vine and petal, arc and light, sacred hoop and cosmic plane, mountain and earth and water and sky with this cuff animated by elemental spirits. The band is formed of two solid strands of heavy-gauge sterling silver pattern wire in a flowing motif of vines and flowers, spread gently apart at the center to hold the focal setting, fused solidly at either end and stamped freehand in a radiant design. The setting at its center consists of an extended bezel, a single flat plane of sterling silver cut freehand into a rectangle with rounded corners, each corner set with stones of earth and water and sky: two pure sky-blue Kingman turquoise cabochons, one stormy lapis lazuli, and one rich grassy jade. At the center, set into a scalloped bezel and trimmed with twisted silver, rests the sacred mountain itself: a single large oval of highly domed high-grade Cloud Mountain turquoise from China’s Hubei District, in evergreen shades of jade and emerald edged with blue, hints of golden light floating on the surface between the crackled brown-black spiderweb matrix that is the hallmark of Cloud Mountain (and of this mountain’s craggy faces, too). The band is 6″ long by 1-1/8″ across at the widest point, with each strand measuring 1/4″ across; full setting is 1-1/2″ long by 1″ across; accent cabochons are 1/8″ across; oval focal cabochon is 1-1/4″ long by 3/4″ across at the widest point (dimensions approximate).
