Southwest Sleeping Beauty Cactus Cuff
This is a freeform middle ear cuff made with 935 Argentium sterling silver which drops into a freeform bezelset mounting for the Sleeping Beauty turquoise and a cactus drop. Designed more for the right ear.
Argentium sterling silver has a higher silver content and higher antitarnish properties and is nickel free. The Sleeping Beauty Mine has been closed for several years now making the availability of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise at a premium. Having had the opportunity to go to Globe, AZ where the mine is located, it is a true treasure to collect, obtain and create jewelry.
