An Old Old Story+Upcycled Leather Belt Cuff+Manassa Turquoise+Unisex Bracelet 3
I found one of my old leather belts from way back... It has seen many many days in the saddle, many many beautiful trails in the high country from Colorado to Idaho. If this belt could talk, oh the stories it would tell! Imagine a rebel girl and her horse in the vast wilderness, on a journey to find herself...
This limited edition cuff is number 3 out of 5 (one of the 5 will be mine)!
I fabricated a setting with fine silver bezel and copper back plate for this gorgeous King's Manassa turquoise, mined in Manassa Colorado, and soldered a brass screw-back to it to create a concho. I then attached it to a length of my old belt, to make this really cool one-of-a-kind cuff. It fastens with leather cord and a hand fabricated sterling silver slider. The cuff is 1.5 inches wide, and adjusts via slider to any length needed.
This gorgeous Manassa turquoise features a stunning combination of rich green fading into sky blue across the stone. Mesmerizing!!!
PLEASE NOTE: *This cuff is made from an old leather belt. It has a very worn, well-used feel and look, and features tooling. *
Also note: This leather has been conditioned using Skidmore's Leather Cream (a local Laramie, WY product) and will have a noticeable scent that will eventually fade with use.
