Derrick was born in Gallup NM. He began his silversmith carrier by helping his uncle Delbert Gordon who became his mentor and teacher. Now Derrick has made a name for himself with his heavy intricate silverwork and top grade stones.
For this bracelet Derrick used a rare blue Royston turquoise. Most of the time you find Royston in shades of green but occasionally you find a blue piece and what a beauty this one is. The stone in cut in a long oval and sent in a smooth sterling bezel and accented with sterling twist rope and sterling droplets. The cuff is created out of a sturdy sterling and is finished with overlay embellishments and outstanding stamp work at the back of the cuff.
