Cuff, Cluster, Turquoise, Hallmark, Vintage, 2745
THIS ENORMOUS CLUSTER CUFF IS CLASSIC EUNICE J. WILSON.
Renowned Navajo artisan Eunice Wilson has been active on the Southwestern jewelry scene since the 1980s; her work is highly collectible and she’s developed a recognizable signature style. Eunice tends to center her cluster cuffs with a singular square stone flanked by two half-oval stones, surrounded by radials of petit point stones, all turquoise and set in tiny serrated bezels with the rounds separated by tiny twist wire detailing, and the outer rim is sterling silver repousse semi-circles with small silver drops. On either side of the center cluster is a kind of “half-cluster” of petit point turquoise stones. The three-bar band tapers to the back.
