Tufa Cast Cuff Bracelet with Natural Water Web Kingman Turquoise

Tufa Cast Cuff Bracelet with Natural Water Web  Kingman Turquoise

This handmade tufa cast bracelet features a beautiful natural, water web Kingman turquoise stone at its center.  Tufa casting is the oldest form of Native American jewelry fabrication.  Tufa is a volcanic stone. Fine tufa is cut in half and the design is etched into the tufa along with lines to vent the heat and a pour hole in the top. The two halves are tightly bound together and the molten silver or gold is poured into the hole. If there are any microscopic cracks the entire mold breaks and the jewelry has to begin all over again. The tufa leaves an organic stippled pattern on the jewelry. This piece has additional stampings on the band that add to its beauty. The artist's initials SH are stamped on the inside of the cuff.
