*The Tufa Stone was hand carved by the artist in a negative 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 “raw” sterling silver cast piece. The flat bracelet piece was hand stamped by the artist prior to it being shaped to its current wrist size configuration. The sterling silver surround piece decorated with “raindrops,” rosettes and twist wire was then appliquéd to the bracelet with the hand cut bezel being hand soldered on to it before the Natural Kingman Turquoise Stone being finally set.
