Presenting an amazing one-of-a-kind vintage 1970’s Sterling Silver cuff bracelet from Arizona’s own Bisbee Bob. This unique Southwestern bracelet features a row of five genuine natural old Bisbee Turquoise cabochons, directly from the Lavender Pit mine, ranging in color from the extremely rare Cobalt Blue to the classic Robin’s Egg Blue. Each bezel set stone is surrounded with Sterling Silver “nuggets” and the cuff bracelet has unusual applique “Butterfly Wings” on the ends. Great care has been taken to preserve the natural patina of this historical piece.

The eccentric Bisbee Bob – Robert (Bob) Bradberry (d. 2009) – was an Anglo silversmith with workshops at both the Bisbee Grand and Cooper Queen Hotels in Bisbee, Arizona in the 1970’s – 1980’s and prided himself on using only turquoise mined from the Old Bisbee Lavender Pit area for his jewelry.
