Handmade Silver Overlay New Lander Variscite Bracelet Signed by Leon MTZ
The silverwork on this braclet is stunning! Hand stamped and hand layered. The center stone is hand cut all natural New Lander with tight spider webbing.
New Lander Turquoise is in fact a form of chalcosiderite rather than turquoise but it is considered a type of turquoise because of the similarity of it to the lander blue turquoise. After polishing, it usually shows black spider web matrix on yellow orange and green chalcosiderite. Today, jewelry makers are seeking after real new lander material because of it's thin black matrix as opposed to typical coarsely webbed material.
Leon Martinez is originally from Prewitt, New Mexico. He learned to silversmith at a young age. Well-known artists influenced him. His religion and prayers has helped him advance making designs, which has helped him perfect his craftsmanship.
I 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).
I 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.
1 Inch opening. 6-1/2 Inch inside circle (including opening). Fits a wrist size of 5 to 6.

Bracelet Fitting Guide:åÊ
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.
I will ship it out to you nicely packaged within 1 business day via USPS. All packages are insured.
I want you to enjoy your Toqos jewelry. In case you are not satisfied with your item, you can return it within 14 days. All I ask for is that you send it back in perfect condition within that time frame.
Kindly note that I unfortunately cannot process international returns & exchanges at this time: all international sales are final.
If you're unsure about caring of your jewelry, wonder if it's right for you or have any other questions.
