No. 8 Turquoise mine Sterling cluster cuff by Gilbert Tom, Navajo



Yet another collaborative piece where the Drifter chooses the stones and specifies the gauge of the Sterling silver, and Navajo master silversmith Gilbert Tom fashions the piece.  No. 8 mine turquoise looks a lot like Dry Creek turquoise, and costs even more in most instances.  This cuff has eleven nice-size pieces.  The silver patina is Gilbert Tom's usual "old-style."  It weighs 3.6 ounces and fits a wrist circumference of 6.75-inches—which is a woman's medium.  Also, the Drifter just acquired a squash blossom necklace with cluster of No.8 mine turquoise.  It will soon be posted in this category aa well.
