Description

 

 

 From Harrison~ "My grandfather was Charlie Bitsue. He was always a silversmith, he can be found in some of the early books about Navajo jewelry. Trader C.G. Wallace gave him lots of work, he would make the silver Settings for the Zuni inlayers". Harrison is Hands Down our Favorite Modern SAND CAST Artist. His Jewerly Generates a Resonance of Satisfaction, he uses a Buttery Smooth Technique that makes wearing his pieces a Pleasure. Harrison creates Navajo Jewelry in the style of the 1920's/30's  using the same methods as the early pueblo silversmiths.

Sand Cast bracelets begin as an idea that gets first carved in tufa stone. After the basic design is carved in tufa stone, molten lead is then poured into the carved mold and a lead blank is pulled from the mold (the mold itself is destroyed in the process). That lead blank is Sand cast (a mixture of sand and oil) and a Silver bracelet produced. The bracelet is stamped, adornments are added, a bezel is made and a beautiful, natural turquoise gemstone is added.

Designed in the Old Style of the 1920's/30's, this New Bracelet Features one Natural Turquoise stone with spiderweb matrix, set in a Stunning Hand Made Sand Cast bracelet. **This is a Stunning Sand Cast Bracelet for your Native American Jewelry Collection!
