COLLECTIBLE SOUTHWEST STYLES


We'll be showing the latest works from collectible Southwestern artisans, like this dramatic cuff by Diné silversmith Philander Begay. Tufa casting is a traditional Navajo silversmithing technique, done by pouring molten metal into a mold made of the compressed volcanic ash found on Navajo lands. The Pueblo tribes all create cast jewelry, but the Navajo were the first to do so in the 1800’s, and tufa cast jewelry has legendary appeal in the Southwest. Tufa molds will lend a unique texture and sheen to the finished piece, making it uniquely identifiable.  It is a complex and difficult process, resulting in a collectible, one-of-a-kind piece of art ready for that special someone or to add to your personal collection!
