A marvelous monarch Butterfly has willfully landed slightly askew, on Zuni Pueblo jeweler Jason Bobelu's astonishingly gorgeous handmade designer sterling silver cuff bracelet.
Twisted sterling silver antennae and wing borders anchor pen shell, colorful orange and red spiny oyster shells, sky blue turquoise, iridescent black lip shell and shimmering mother-of-pearl in the challenging stone-to-stone jewelry method where materials are set side by side. Alive with transformation and beauty, this glorious butterfly station measures about 2 1/2" by 2".
The approximate 1 3/4" wide sides of this extraordinary cuff bracelet are also set with these exciting materials, creating pleasing patterns that merry beautifully with the winged insect. Silver spiral elements are between the tiered pueblo or mountain shaped overlays.
A museum-quality collectible, Jason's stellar cuff bracelet has an entire inner circumference of about 7", including the opening of approximately 1 1/4". Signed by the artist.
