Noah Pajarito's gorgeous tufa cast sterling silver Turtle pin/pendant hosts an amazing Kingman turquoise cabochon. Tufa stone is a compressed volcanic ash material. It is easier to carve than sandstone and its porous surface leaves a unique texture once the metal has cooled. Tufa casting is a labor-intensive process involving many steps. Signed by the artist, about 2 1/8" long and 1 1/4" wide, slightly convex. We love this turtle's little curled tail! The sterling silver hammered collar is available and sold separately here.
