Plump repoussé ovals outlined with hand stamping, bracket a sublime square of turquoise from Nevada's Morenci mine—all from the skilled hands of Prescott, Arizona, silversmith Jock Favour. He hand forges the one-of-a-kind cuff from ingot coin silver, melted down from pre-1960 coins, hand burnishing it to a satiny oxidized finish. 2-1/4" dia, 1/2" tapers to 1/4".
Similar to Robert Redford’s vision of Sundance, I have always had long-held interest in the myth and magic of the landscape. This passion is witnessed in each painting, sculpture and jewelry design I create.
A strong background in anthropology allows me to bring this concept into the creative expression of my design process. Good primitive art has a vitality and human quality that instill a sense of awe and wonder. If my work can catch a note of ancient magic, I have succeeded. —Jock Favour
