Size 6.5 Tufa Stone Cast Sterling Silver Ring Masterfully Handmade And Designed By Navajo Artist VIRGIL REEDER.
Artist Hallmark: “V R” (inscribed on back side of ring)
Materials: Sterling Silver
Technique: * Tufa Stone Cast, Appliqué
*The body or face of the ring was hand carved by the artist in a negative Tufa Stone mold with an opposing flat Tufa Stone secured on top. Molten Sterling Silver was then poured into the top opening of this Tufa Stone “block” creating a flat, cast design of the ring face. The artist then then reshaped the ring face to its current, slightly concave configuration in order to better accommodate the curvature of one’s finger. Once reshaped, the sterling silver roped border or twist wire and center sterling silver ball was then appliquéd to the ring face. The sterling silver ring shank, handmade by the artist, was then lastly soldered to the back side of the ring.
