This beautiful bracelet was carefully handcrafted Santo Domingo silversmith Joel Pajarito using the Tufa casting method. In this labor-intensive method, each piece is created by carving and etching rough blocks of volcanic ash (called tuff or tufa) to create a mold. Only one object is extracted from each mold, making each piece truly one-of-a-kind. This highly detailed bracelet features raised ridges atop leading to 14k gold accent near a stunning blue turquoise piece at center. A closer look and you'll see cornstalks and geometric shapes along the inside. Beautifully casted to show every detail this bracelet
is truly a stunning piece that is a must-have for your Native American jewelry collection.
Bracelet measures IC: 5-3/4" BW: 1-1/8 O: 1-1/4" and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Our Guarantee of Authenticity
At the Indian Pueblo Store we guarantee that your purchase is an original and authentic work handcrafted by Native American artists as defined by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990. We ask our artists to complete an extensive certification process, providing a CIB (Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood) card and other documentation of their Native American heritage. Our team of experts carefully inspects every product to guarantee it is handcrafted using traditional, sustainable processes and natural materials of only the highest quality. We record the place and date of each purchase and pride ourselves in paying a fair price that allows artists to make a living practicing their craft. At a time when many commercially-made products are being sold as handcrafted Native American art, our in-depth purchase process allows us to guarantee the authenticity of every unique piece of fine art we offer. For more than 35 years, we have made it a priority to visit artists in their studio or home to purchase their latest handcrafted pieces and learn about their work. We have developed lasting relationships with artists, as well as dealers and collectors, and we take pride in being a trusted destination for fine Native American art.
