Blue Fairytale Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Bracelet Bangle Signed Leo Feeney
This simple, but beautiful handmade sterling silver bangle bracelet features a medium cluster of rare grade AAA blue Sleeping Beauty Turquoise with two Blue Topaz gems.
Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes in a pure sky blue or robin's egg blue color and is relatively stable and suitable for jewelry making.
The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine, located in Globe, Arizona, is one of the most famous turquoise mines and produces some of the most desirable turquoise in the world due to the purity of its color. The mine closed for a second time (first time in the early 1960s) in August 2012, which has skyrocketed the price of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.
The mine's name comes from the mountain the mine is located in, which from far away looks like a sleeping woman lying on her back with her arms crossed.
Leo Feeney is recognized as one of the most skilled Native American style artisans in the world. For the past 40 years, he has perfected a one-of-a-kind style of Southwestern fine jewelry, influenced heavily by Zuni Pueblo design. Leo's work can be identified by the intricate cluster designs of the sterling silver along with turquoise, gaspeite, red coral, spiny oyster and occasionally faceted stones. He has, without doubt, mastered his craft, though this humble master jeweler notes that he will always evolve, improve and fine-tune his skills. Needless to say, Leo is one of our favorite artists and we feature a lot of his work.
We choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted).
We also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment.
6" inside circumference including 1" opening.

Bracelet Fitting Guide:
Use a tape measure. Wrap the tape measure around your wrist on which you plan to wear your Toqos bracelet. Make a note of the number at the point where the tape meets the 0. To ensure the bracelet fits comfortably, add 1.5 cm or 1/2 inch. For sterling bracelets, some can be bent and adjusted due to the versatility of sterling silver.
We will ship it out to you nicely packaged within 1 business day via USPS. All packages are insured.
We want you to enjoy your Toqos jewelry. In case you are not satisfied with your item, you can return it within 14 days. All we ask for is that you send it back in perfect condition within that time frame.
Kindly note that we unfortunately cannot process international returns & exchanges at this time: all international sales are final.
