A remarkable egg-shaped cobra jasper cabochon makes a potent reminder of renewal and fresh beginnings...this unique and lovely stone comes from the studio of Gary Wilson in Tucson, Arizona.  Cobra jasper is characterized by its warm earthy hues, creams, and whites, and out of what must be thousands of varieties of jasper, it is one of my favorites.  This one looks very much like a genuine egg, but jasper is a very durable stone, making it perfect for a bracelet

I set the jasper in a primitive sterling bezel and attached a wide cuff of heavy 16 gauge sterling silver.  It was heat scarred: brought to the very edge of the melting point with my torch and then quickly cooled, creating a warped and creased surface like an eroded desertscape seen from above.  Several layers of rich, iridescent patina were applied and the entire piece was given a soft satin finish. 

SIZE:  The internal dimensions of the cuff are 2 3/8" x 1 5/8", or 60mm x 43mm.  The opening is 1 1/8" or 28mm.  This size can be increased or reduced somewhat but I would recommend that you have me do this for you; send me a message and let me know, and I'll see if it's possible.  The cuff itself is 1 1/4" or 30mm wide, and the stone in its setting measures 1 3/8" x 2", or 52mm x 34mm.

CARE:  Even with a bit of flexibility to the metal, a cuff bracelet should not be bent as this will cause metal fatigue leading up to eventual breakage and it will loosen the stone from its setting.  Other than that, this is a very durable piece that will only improve with age.  The patina will deepen over time.  You can polish the silver by lightly buffing it with a dry kitchen scrubbing pad or use a silver polishing cloth for a brighter shine.  Wash with soap and water as desired. 

PRESENTATION: This bracelet will come to you beautifully giftwrapped.  See the shop policies below for details.
