Unique Concretion Inlay Cuff

About The Unique Concretion Inlay Cuff

A delightful experiment, this joyous cuff utilizes a broad range of materials uniquely for their colors and shapes.  Even the adhesive binding everything together becomes part of the palette.  These elements have been pushed into pits and crevices, then wiped level to reveal colorful stones and shells.  

There are no marks to indicate its maker, but this cuff's handling of materials suggest a Zuni artist.  The concretion is expertly executed.  

A final shaping and smoothing of the mass created a single large cabochon with all the visual exuberance and life of a festival.  You can almost hear the music and jubilant laughter !
