I was very lucky to have found this never-worn vintage piece right from Nate Waxman, the man behind Swoboda's success. I have seen this no evil monkeys motif on brooches and pendants, but never on a cuff. The cuff has a hammered texture, and the monkeys have bodies made of genuine tiger's eye, garnet, and peridot with amethyst eyes and freshwater pearls to fill out gaps between their legs. Signed 'SWO', which is short for Swoboda. This means that this design is commissioned after 1966, when all of Swoboda's jewelry are signed.
