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 America with gemstones from around the world.
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.
