Description

Leather and Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet - Vintage Hopi - Spirit Bear - Hopi Bear - Sterling Silver Bear Bracelet

This one-of-a-kind leather cuff bracelet from our Sky Stone Collection was created from a repurposed sterling silver "old pawn" item which serves as its centerpiece. The old pawn item was originally a bolo that I believe was made by a silversmith from the Hopi tribe in the mid to late 1900's. This fabulous, sterling silver piece features a trapezoid shaped medallion with a marvelous Hopi overlay design that includes the wonderful spirit bear. As per Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper". The arrow inside the bear is known as the "heartline" and shows that an Indian warrior's heart is strong like the bear's. The piece is very well made and perfectly oxidized to accentuate the design. The bolo was unsigned and unmarked. The black leather cuff was fabricated from a length of reconditioned, old belt leather and features a classic hand tooled floral design. The leather cuff has a button stud closure, and will fit a small wrist that measures 6". A beautiful, traditional Hopi treasure!

The Sky Stone Collection by Roca Jewelry Designs features one-of-a-kind leather cuff bracelets adorned with repurposed "dead pawn" jewelry pieces that have been handcrafted by the Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi Indians. We at Roca Jewelry Designs search high and low for these amazing, vintage jewelry items which include bolos, bracelets, rings, pendants, brooches, earrings and barrettes to convert into unique focal pieces. Each handmade bracelet holds it's own piece of history and seems to tell its own unique story! No two bracelets are alike, and they can not be replicated.

Many of the western cuff bracelets in this collection feature vintage western belts for the leather cuffs, often with wonderfully worn, intricately tooled designs. Most of the smaller bracelets are created using well-used, reconditioned reins and harness leathers for the cuffs.

Rich leathers, hand-forged silver, and natural gemstones form an irresistible partnership in these fabulous, heirloom bracelets.
