Description: Beautiful flowers cover this silver bracelet. Handmade by Rebecca Begay, wife of Darryl Begay. Both are well known for their fine artistry.
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 sand casting.
This bracelet is a stunning example of the artistry of the Navajo silversmith. Each piece is handmade out of sterling silver.
