A splendid, contemporary Navajo tufa-cast

silver cuff bracelet set with ten pieces of

very rare Lander Blue spiderweb turquoise

by Aaron Anderson, 2015



Aaron Anderson began making jewelry in 1991, and, over the past 25 years he has built a reputation as one of the finest jewelers in the field. His speciality is tufa-casting, a difficult and exacting process which requires painstaking attention to detail and precise technique. Anderson has stated that his background in Civil Engineering has really helped him in this regard and it’s easy to see why.


In fine tufa-casting what is most desired is the elusive combination of delicacy and strength both of which are immediately apparent in both the design and execution of this outstanding bracelet. To make things even more interesting, Aaron chose to set this bracelet with ten beautiful matched small round stones of the world’s rarest and most expensive turquoise, variety “Lander Blue” spiderweb from Nevada which now commonly retails at $200 plus per carat.


The bracelet measures 1 3/4” in width at its widest point. The interior circumference end-to-end is 5 1/2” and the gap between the terminals is 1 1/16” for a total interior circumference of

6 9/16”. It weighs a substantial, yet very comfortable 92 grams or 3 1/4 ounces and it is properly signed “AARONA” on the interior. The bracelet has never been worn and is in as-new original condition. A gorgeous and masterfully-crafted piece from one of the finest of Southwestern jewelry’s “Young Guns”.
