The silver band was formed in the tufa-casting manner by which molten silver was poured into a tufa mold that had been carved in the desired shape and pattern.  Once removed from the mold, the band was then heated and curved to its present shape.  The four silver rays around the stone appear to be hand hammered and soldered onto the band.  A large tear drop turquoise cab was then set in a scalloped silver bezel and attached to the bracelet.  There is no artist stamp or signature on this Sterling Silver Tufa Cast Bracelet with a Turquoise Cab.

 

Condition: very good condition

Provenance: from the collection of a Santa Fe family
