SoldEmail to a friend
When Wes described this masterpiece bracelet he stated that he used 300 carats of rare Number 8 spiderweb turquoise to create it. This quantity of material from a famous claim that played out in the 1940s is virtually unheard of. Wes’s skill in the lapidary arts is unsurpassed. The design features of this bracelet are similar to the one that won a blue ribbon as best of jewelry at the Santa Fe Indian Market this past August. He has inlaid each of the marvelous large cabochons along the top of this wide bracelet from end to end. To add color he has inlaid deep oxblood corals and fine deep blue lapis. Thick solid 14 karat gold inserts enhance the inlaid gems. To one side a gem grade lime green Carico Lake turquoise sits in a solid 14 karat gold bezel. To the other side sits an oxblood coral set in 14 karat gold as well. The edges of the piece exhibits deep and unique texture with three round peekaboo holes inlaid with coral and turquoise on one side. The finished bracelet is a striking and unusual one of a kind collectible, a testament to the skill of a mature artist.
