Molten Sterling Silver was then poured into the top opening of this Tufa Stone “block” creating the cast design of the Crow figure. The circular twist wire or roped border and twist wired bezel was then appliquéd and soldered to the center of the Crow body prior to the Kingman Turquoise stone being set. The size 8 1/4 sterling silver ring band or shank, also handmade by the artist, was lastly soldered onto the back side of the Crow body.
