GARY CUSTER STERLING SILVER SAND CAST PIN NAVAJO

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

In the mid 1800s, Navajo silversmiths started to use sand casting as one of their silversmithing techniques.  Today, silversmiths still use this technique by carving a design in tufa stone (a porous limestone) and then placing another stone against it.  The two pieces are fastened together and molten silver is poured in.  Once it has cooled, the artist takes the piece out and finishes it. Gary Custer created this beautiful sterling silver pin in this manner.  Gary has been silversmithing for about 30 years and is known for his fabulous sand cast work.  Weighs 26 grams.  Signed

1  1/8” wide x 3” long
