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.
