Navajo crafted sterling silver "Sand-cast" cuff bracelet with blue turquoise accent

This bracelet style, commonly referred to as "sand-cast" is based in one of the oldest styles of Native American jewelry. Following a centuries old tradition of using natural sand stone as a mold for a jewelry design early native artists would carve a pattern into a piece of sand stone. Molten sterling was poured into the pattern. A second piece of sand-stone was placed on-top of the molten sterling enclosing the design and completing the mold. When the metal cooled the sand-stones were broken open revealing a single jewelry item.

Always one-of-a-kind and always unique.

The bracelet measures approximately 1.25 inches wide across the top and is set to fit an 7.5 / 8 inch wrist. This bracelet is Navajo handcrafted in solid sterling silver and highlights a single turquoise from Arizona.
