A lovely sterling cuff bracelet with onyx and angel skin coral cabachon stones by Arizona metalsmith Kim Rawdin. Kim Rawdin studied painting and art education in college in New York and his interest in jewelry started when he took a job as an art teacher on a Navajo reservation in Arizona. Becoming highly influenced by the beauty of the Arizona landscape, he is also influenced by traditional Japanese haiku and scroll paintings, and often includes on the reverse of his bracelets a poem that serves as “an emotional metaphor for the landscape.” This bracelet measures 5 1/4" around in the inside plus an additional 1 1/4" opening. It is 3/4" wide and weighs 52 grams. Fine original condition and signed Kim Sterling. The inspirational message on the reverse reads "The Years Out Again But This Afternoon Is Not Of Winter And Far From Night..."
A very charming bracelet.
