Tufa Cast Kingman Turquoise Belt Buckle | Edison Cummings
2 7/8" x 1 5/8"
This exceptional belt buckle by Navajo jeweler Edison Cummings showcases a Kingman turquoise gemstone with heavy umber matrices framed by geometric sterling silver linework. Created through the technique of tufa casting, the result is a belt buckle with unique texture and character.
Naturally found on the Navajo reservation, tufa stone is a compressed material formed from volcanic ash. Unlike sandstone, it offers ease of carving and, when used for casting, imparts a distinctive texture to the metal as it cools due to its porous nature. Tufa casting is a meticulous and intricate process that entails multiple steps, showcasing the dedication and craftsmanship involved in its creation.
