Turquoise Sierra Cuff
This spectacular statement cuff was made by renowned Navajo artisan, Pete Sierra, who is known for his outstanding cornrow inlay, and was a student of the legendary Hopi artist Charles Loloma.
Thick and exquisite rows of Manassa turquoise are perfectly aligned on a foundation of heavy gauge sterling silver. Manassa turquoise from Colorado is known for its blue-green to green color with a golden or brown, non-webbed matrix. It runs primarily in veins hosted by a beautiful golden brown hard rock. It takes a skilled stone cutter to get the turquoise out of this hard rock and is believed to have been mined by the Ancestral Puebloans.
This cuff measures 1.25" wide with a 7" interior circumference include a 1.25" gap. Fits a medium-sized wrist best. A rare and beautiful heirloom piece. Signed by the artist. This item ships from the US.
