“The River Series”- tufa cast jewelry
Natural sky-blue pilot mountain turquoise sterling silver Tufa cast bracelet. This bracelet is made by carving a design into tufa stone which is volcanic rock and pouring silver into the design at 1800 degrees. The pouring is just the beginning as the finish work is the lengthiest part of the whole process. Very heavy sterling cuff with design on each side of the stone like a flowing river. The sky-blue stone coloration represents the coloration of water in this bracelet and the gold matrix represents the brillant colors of rock you see in moving water. Silver is antiqued to bring out design. Inside measurement is 5 3/8″ with a 1 1/4″ gap. This bracelet was hand hammered on my anvil to get its shape. This cuff is gorgeous alone, with other silver or with leather accessory pieces.
