Born in 1966, Andy Cadman is the older brother of well-known silversmith Darrel Cadman and a half-brother of renowned smiths Gary and Sunshine Reeves. This group of relatively young smiths (35 to 40 years old) all learned much of their trade from David Reeves (Gary and Sunshine's full-brother who is now deceased). The Cadman brothers and the Reeves brothers, therefore, share a common element of apprenticeship and exhibit certain similarities in their work. Andy is a jovial big bear of a fellow and his friends and family call him "Ben."
This is a large two-stone ring set with a pair of nicely matched stones of natural, untreated Kingman turquoise. This tight-grained stone is polished to glassy smoothness. The stones are set in smooth bezels which are wrapped by twist wire. The shank is hefty and wide to give this large ring the comfort and stability you want in a long, large-stone ring.
Hallmarked A. CADMAN and stamped Sterling inside.
Stones: top 7/8" x 5/8"; bottom 7/8" x 5/8"
