Ric Charlie is a Navajo artist who specializes in tufa cast jewelry. Tufa is a special volcanic rock that once hardened resembles stone. The artist gathers tufa and shapes it into the desired dimensions needed for the current project. Once the tufa is the desired size, they cut the stone into two. After they cut the tufa it needs to be perfectly flush on both sides. The artist then uses various tool to create their design into the stone. Once they have finished they align both sides of the tufa and pour molten metal in leaving them with their design set in metal. Ric Charlie carved this beautifully detailed double-sided Navajo Yei pendant. The pendant is 18k Yellow, White, and Rose Gold. He used only the best Gem Quality stone and diamonds to take the pendant to the next level of design. Isn’t the detail incredible?
