A major presence in the Indian art world, this award-winning jeweler has a special ability to use traditional Hopi motifs and symbols in a thoroughly contemporary way.
The precision of his tufa-cast designs is also legendary. Tufa casting is very tricky. Tufa is a naturally hardened volcanic material that is like compressed sand, and therefore crumbles easily.
Only one or two casts can be made from the hand-carved tufa mold. This bracelet has a wonderful graphic quality, thanks to the darkened background. and the meticulous technique.
The raised, geometric rain cloud motif repeats in an animated, geometric pattern, around the entire bracelet. The edges are smoothed, so it is as comfortable as it is handsome.
The natural red coral cabochon is of the highest quality (of course!), and glows like a fiery ember. And, there’s a secret on the interior – just for the wearer: a handsome Sunface, as well as ripples that signify rivers, tufa-cast like the rest of the bracelet.
The sun, together with the rain, balances Nature, which results in abundant crops; therefore, health, happiness and prosperity.
Good luck, fabulous coral, great workmanship, and a vibrant,, yet classically chic design and color combination – all by a renowned jeweler.
Wear it every day, and get compliments everywhere you go.
