Snake River Cuff
Sterling silver - 40% reclaimed
Royston Ribbon Turquoise
This cuff Measures 5.75" on the inside and will fit well on a wrist that measures anywhere from 5 to 6 inches
Why yes, this cuff IS named after the Snake River! Originating in Wyoming and flowing into the Columbia River, the Snake River is the largest tributary to the Columbia. I have fished it only once in Idaho on the South Fork and had a really beautiful experience with the austere grandeur of the west scenery and its locals. Hope you love this as much as I do.
With all jewelry pieces, but especially cuffs - it is important to open and close your cuff very little. My advice is to pull the cuff open just enough to SLIP onto the side of your wrist (the thinnest part of the wrist) and then close enough to feel like it won't slip off. And then let it be and enjoy.
Made with love - one of a kind, twisted, bent, set, sawn, stamped, fired by my own two hands.
Note to buyer: The reclaiming process is a bit of a long one. Most of the sterling silver I buy is from well used jewelry that isn't being worn anymore or has been broken. I also buy used sterling silverware. I melt it all down and roll it into sheet and wire. This means that I don't have to buy freshly mined silver that is much easier to work with. Reclaimed pieces cost more because of this extra process. In the end, reclaiming metal for my wares is gratifying and worth it to me. I hope you feel the same. With love.
