One of a Kind piece.  

Sterling silver Navajo belt buckle handcrafted with the Tufa Cast technique. 

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. 

Famous Native designs are hand-carved on this belt buckle, such as the diamond and moustache shapes. 

Suitable for a leather width of 1.4"
