Fox Mine Turquoise Cuff

David Taliman

About The Fox Mine Turquoise Cuff

There is a quality about this bracelet that one might describe as sublime. It is perfection in design, balance and execution. The techniques used are beautifully combined, like the many instruments in an orchestra work together to produce a symphony!

 Everything is made by hand--cut, carved, forged and fabricated. Even the decorative stamp designs were created by this amazing Cochiti artist--who carved the steel to make these unique impressions! The single Fox mine natural turquoise cabochon is a fitting focal point for this fine silver setting. Together they are mesmerizing! 

This wonderful cuff by David Taliman will issue life-long pleasure to some very fortunate person!
