Inspired by his son, Leading-Hummingbird-from-the-Sky, award-winning Navajo designer Fritz Casuse has created a stunning cuff bracelet that depicts the beauty of flight and freedom. A hummingbird and butterfly float among the flowers in an intricate and fluid tapestry of openwork sterling silver which features gorgeous highlights of turquoise, variscite, red coral, citrine, and lapis gems. The low-relief sculpture of the bracelet lends a magical motion and depth. Measures 5-3/4" on the inside circumference x 1-5/8" wide. Made in the USA.
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.
This bracelet is a celebration of nature. A hummingbird, which symbolizes the nectar of life and timeless joy, is also admired in Native cultures for its fierce defense if its territory. Though small, the hummingbird's size did not indicate its strength in a fight. Flowers around the hummingbird, centered with gemstones, represent the balance that humans must find with nature. Dragonflies, which symbolize life, flit around the sides of the cuff in a truly remarkable sight.
