Prancing and proud are the many equine friends that grace Anthony Lovato's tufa cast sterling silver and turquoise cuff bracelet. He's an avid horseman and so incorporates these powerful animals into his jewelry works.

The labor-intensive tufa cast method is an exacting process involving cutting a tufa stone in half, smoothing out both surface sides, etching a sprue hole on top, then carefully carving out these Horses (or ponies) in which Anthony poured in molten sterling silver. The end result is this enchanted bracelet that tapers from about 1 1/4" to 7/8" wide". The gorgeous turquoise cabochon itself is about 5/8" by 1/2". 

Inside this comfortable cuff bracelet, is Anthony's signature along with inspiring hand elements, which can represent unity and creativity. This cuff bracelet's entire inner circumference is about 6" which includes the opening of about 1".
