Sand casting or Tufa casting are methods by which a jeweler pours molten silver in a pre-designed mold in a flat brick-like form.  The bracelet cast in this manner is cast in the flat position. After cooling off for a period, the flat bracelet is removed from the mold and heated to a temperature which allows it to be shaped in a curved form.  

This bracelet has a design that might be described as “bow tie,” not the intention of the artist but an apt description.  The ends of the bracelet are ribbed in the same manner as the design on top.


Condition: this Navajo Nation Sterling Silver Cast Bracelet is in excellent condition

Provenance: from the extensive Southwest Indian Jewelry collection of a Colorado family
