 NEW!  Beautiful Navajo turquoise tufa cast bracelet! The tufa cast bracelet is made the old ways using volcanic rock and carving a mold into the rock. Similar to sandcasting, but the volcanic rock is much softer and leaves the textured appearance. Not many silversmiths use this method because of the rock being so soft. They are lucky to get more than one casting without the mold breaking. The silversmith has carved different symbols into the mold and finishes the bracelet by adding an oval cut and polished blue turquoise stone with brown matrix set into a smooth bezel to the center of the face.

The bracelet measures 1/2" wide with an inner circumference of 5 7/16" and a 1 1/16" opening. It will fit a 6 1/4" to 6 3/8" wrist as is and can not be carefully and slightly adjusted without damage to the bracelet. It weighs 33.7 grams (1.19 ounce or 1.08 troy ounces) and is hallmarked A - Sterling by the Navajo silversmith Anthony Bowman. Beautiful Navajo high end turquoise tufa casted bracelet!   $209.95
