Amethyst leather accent wristband bracelet, 'Taxco Abacus' (Mexico)

A master jeweler, Roy Nilson creates this novel bracelet from 925 sterling silver, mined in Taxco. Burnished textures and dark "burnt" color add variety to the material's innate gleam. Amethysts center four abacus beads in the central medallion, and the handcrafted bracelet is accentuated with dark brown leather braids.
