Sunshine is the younger brother of renowned silversmith Gary Reeves and of David Reeves (now deceased), who was so instrumental in teaching the craft to both Gary and Sunshine, as well as their half-brothers Darrel and Andy Cadman. Sunshine's work, like that of his brother Gary, is present in the collections of the Heard Museum in Phoenix and he has won numerous awards for his work.
This is Sunshine's classic large-stone wide cuff with dramatic scallop appliquées. The stampwork is his usual deep-stamped, flawless work done with his signature handmade stamps. When making wide cuffs in this style, he always uses very large stones with phenomenal color. This is the first one of these bracelets we've had with a large piece of spiny oyster. This is a large, thick oval showing softly curved striations in vertical orientation. The color is simply sensational. This large oval shell is set in a straight-edged bezel wrapped with twist wire and framed by large scallop appliquées.
Hallmarked "SUNSHINE REEVES" and stamped "Sterling" inside.
