Tufa-casting is an old Navajo technique where the impression of the bracelet is carved in volcanic stone (tufa-stone) and the molten melted is poured into the impression. This was one of the very first techniques that the Navajo created in the late 1800’s. This style is often mistaken as “sand-casting”, as tufa casting is a different technique than sandcasting.
