I just finished this large sterling cuff with Gaspeite. Gaspeite is an extremely rare and expensive stone, known for its distinctive bright green color. I was thrilled to recently acquire this large cabochon, with such great color!
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this cuff.
This is a cuff bracelet that features a large cabochon of Morenci Native Copper. This stone was mined in the Morenci Turquoise Mine, at a depth of something like 3600 feet. This shaft has been flooded for years, and there is not a lot of this material out there. I also have a ring and a pendant with this stone.

I completed the sterling 'beads' some time ago, and it took me awhile to decide what beads I wanted to put with them. I finally finished it this morning, with these cool, spiky green turquoise beads, and am really pleased. I may make a single row green turquoise bead necklace that could line the top of it...
