  • Woman One of a Kind piece - Navajo handcraft
Artist: Lee Begay
This bracelet is made with the Tufa Cast technique, one of the oldest 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. 
This bracelet is set with Kingman turquoises (Arizona) and is carved of a corn plant (symbol of good crops) and a Hopi Kachina.
The Kachinas carry the prayers of the humans to the divinities. They are supernatural beings who have a link with the gods. During some ceremonies they appear to the Natives by dancing and singing, their look is a mix between animals and abstract figures. 
This bracelet is made in sterling silver.
