  • Unisex One of a Kind piece
Sterling silver Navajo belt buckle handcrafted with the Tufa Cast technique, a traditional silversmithing process used by the Navajos. 
The artist takes a mold made of volcanic stone (tufa) and divises it in two parts. In the first part, he carves a design of his choice, melts silver in, and tightly covers it with the second part of the mold. Once the silver is hard, the mold eventually breaks, making this piece a unique item. This technique creates a jewel of traditionnal rough aspect on which we can clearly see the beautiful lumps of tufa stone.
