Native American designer Fritz Casuse likes to create jewelry that has dimension and texture, a legacy of his background as a sculptor. Fritz's attention to color and balance and his contemporary take on Native American jewelry excites collectors and has earned him a number of awards. Crafted in an openwork design of sparkling sterling silver, this cuff bracelet features varying sizes of vibrant bezel-set gemstones, including blue turquoise, blue lapis lazuli, white mother of pearl, garnet, peridot and amethyst. Truly Southwestern yet undoubtedly contemporary, bracelet measures approximately 5-3/4" inside circumference and is made in the USA.
Full of symbolism, this story-telling bracelet will give you something new to marvel at each time you wear it. A Yei spirit figure participates in a healing ceremony, while the moon shines in a white mother of pearl cabochon. A turquoise cross is a symbol of faith, while a small sterling silver family with a horse is a symbol of independence. The shelter of teepees, a husband and wife with a baby, and a pattern that represents the woven baskets that were so important in Native culture are stories that will keep you staring at this gorgeous cuff all day long.
Like all fine jewelry, Carolyn Pollack jewelry should be handled carefully. Store jewelry in a plastic bag, dry and wrapped in tissue paper, when not being worn or displayed. Clean sterling silver with a silver polishing cloth when necessary, but never subject to chlorine, silver dips, chemical solutions or ultrasonic cleaners, as these substances can cause the gemstones to discolor. Never wear jewelry in a swimming pool.
