A large piece of Royston turquoise that reaches the length of this cuff makes a statement. The wide sterling silver band is stamped with symbols commonly used in Native American jewelry.
The short, thin lines are meant to symbolize rain, meaning renewal and fertility. The lines that run into mountains and valleys are distance and strength. The turquoise stone itself symbolizes protection and success.
Handmade by Navajo artists on the Navajo Reservation, below the Lukachukai Mountains. The artists are self-taught, and incorporate traditional Navajo symbols and themes into each piece.
