Miller Turquoise Gemstone on Copper + Fine Silver Cuff Bracelet (Lg)

This cuff is the most recent of my handmade copper cuff bracelet designs, displaying an amazing turquoise gemstone which goes beautifully with copper. Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminium. It is rare and valuable in finer grades and has been prized as a gemstone and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. This beautiful piece of green turquoise was hand-mined from Miller Mountain which is located south of the Candellaria Hills in Nevada. Miller Turquoise is a recent find (2015) and I was able to purchase this and one other piece from the actual mine owners. Miller Turquoise is one of the more expensive turquoise, which leads me to believe that this mine is no longer producing turquoise.

I fabricated this cuff from 14ga copper sheet, hammering the surface to create texture. The fine silver bezel that surrounds this gorgeous turquoise gemstone has been fused with recycled fine silver dust creating a very unique, rustic texture.   And finally, the entire copper cuff was given a beautiful patina of golds and browns and finished with a light coat of wax. This handcrafted Miller turquoise on copper cuff bracelet matches perfectly with the Miller Turquoise Copper Pendant

This handcrafted turquoise gemstone copper cuff bracelet is approximately 1.25” in width at the center and graduating down to 1” closer to the cuff opening on each end. The actual turquoise stone setting is ~ 1.5” in length and width. This handmade turquoise copper cuff bracelet has an approximate inside measurement of 6 1/4” ", in addition to the 1" gap, for a total inside measurement of ~7 1/4" - this cuff will fit wrist size 6 1/2 - 7 1/4" comfortably.   Be sure to read my blog entry on cuff bracelets for information about cuff placement and the do's and don'ts for placing a cuff bracelet on your wrist.

Nothing seems to make a statement as bold as wearing a substantial cuff bracelet and this one definitely has a masculine feel, which I personally love.  This handmade Native American inspired turquoise copper cuff bracelet is a beautiful piece of wearable art.

Turquoise is a strong stone for spiritual attunement and is very effective to aid communication. Be sure to wear this turquoise copper cuff bracelet when you need help speaking your truth. Please check out Crystalpedia as there is so much more information about turquoise.

Please avoid moisturizers and or perfume on the area of your wrist where your cuff will be worn, as it may react with the copper and leave dark marks on your wrist.  Also, some people may have an allergic skin reaction to copper and it will leave dark marks on their skin.  Either way, the dark marks can be washed off easily with a little soap and water.

Wearing copper bracelets for health benefits has a long history, all the way back to ancient Egypt.  Other than being very grounding, copper is also said to be beneficial for those who have arthritis/inflammation, joint pain, and joint stiffness

Each piece of my handcrafted metal jewelry designs is stamped with my logo and signature.
