Molten Sterling Silver was then poured into the top opening of this Tufa Stone “block” creating the cast design of the ring body. The outside circular sterling silver wire and bezel were then appliquéd and soldered to the ring body prior to the Natural Mineral Valley Turquoise stone being set. The size 8 sterling silver ring band or shank with appliquéd twist wire, also handmade by the artist, was then soldered onto the back side of the ring body to complete this outstanding piece.
