“The Way of Medicine” Cuff Bracelet. $1,100.

The way of medicine is a narrow path, but one of beauty and abundance. Wings blazes a trail in silver and stone with this slender cuff in an old classic, eminently traditional design, wrought out of heavy nine-gauge solid sterling silver and polished to a mirror finish. At the center sits an extraordinary small beveled square of old green turquoise (most likely green Bisbee), a soft and fertile shade shot through with delicate veins of rusty-red copper matrix.  At either side of the focal cabochon, a long traditional arrow, stamped and scored freehand, extends halfway down the band in each direction. Only three stamps are used to create each arrow: one long freehand scoremark for the shaft, a stylized triangle for the arrowhead, and four freehand short scores on either side of each shaft to create the feather fletching. Three tiny hoops are arrayed along each solid side edge of the band just below the bezel, and four more accent each edge on either side at both ends of the band. Cuff is 6″ long by 1/4″ across; cabochon is 1/4″ square (dimensions approximate).

Sterling silver; green copper-webbed turquoise (likely Bisbee)
