The Waters Cuff Bracelet Top View

A shimmering silver river pools into three beautiful blue-green lakes in this brand-new cuff by Wings. The band is a solid sheet of sterling silver, hammered by hand in hundreds of strikes to create an effect not unlike light-dappled ripples on the surface of a flowing river. At the center, a large oval cabochon of natural Colorado Evans turquoise, a perfect robin’s-egg blue with a bold rusty-red matrix, sits serenely in a scalloped bezel trimmed with twisted silver. The center is flanked by a pair of stunning, intensely-hued Skystone cabochons from Arizona’s Turquoise Mountain mine, one indigo edged in bright coppery brown beneath a wispy veil of white matrix, the other a brilliant emerald green shot through with golden bronze and the same mysterious whorls of white. Separating the cabochons, set at ordinal points around the center stone, are four hand-made drops of sterling silver ingot, each stamped in the pattern of a flowering water plant. At either end of the row of stones, facing in opposite directions, are images of Grandmother Turtle, she who holds the people above the waters and the world on her back, each hand-stamped in traditional patterns and overlaid upon the band. The cuff is one inch across; the center stone is 7/8″ long by 5/8″ across; the blue Turquoise Mountain cabochon is 58″ long by 1/2″ across, while the green is 11/16″ long by 9/16″ across; the ingot flowers are 1/4″ across; and the turtle overlays are 13/16″ long from nose to tip of tail by 5/8″ across at the widest point (all dimensions approximate).
