Tufa Cast Turquoise Flower Bracelet
Mother, wife, and teacher, as well as award-winning jeweler, Rebecca has loved art since childhood.
Her favorite method is tufa casting, and a favorite motif is floral. This delicious bracelet combines the two in instantly recognizable beauty.
Evenly textured silver is the background for a strong pattern of flowers and leaves. Everything is, of course, textured, because the molten silver was poured into the grainy, sandy, carved tufa mold.
With the consummate expertise of a Best in Show winner, the decorative flowers and leaves are carved out of the crumbly tufa in several layers of depth, and with remarkable clarity.
The design is bold and animated, but also feminine and graceful, and the execution is totally masterful.
This is an outstanding and beautiful example of the highest expression of artistry and technique by a wonderful contemporary Native American jeweler.
Wear it everywhere now, and let your descendants admire it in the future!
