    Product Information:

    Tim Herrera is from Cochiti Pueblo, he has been creating Native American works of wearable art for 13 years. Tim learned his trade from Charllene Reano and his dad, but also through his own experiences with silver and gems. Tim has a very unique contemporary style, he mainly uses tufa casts to create most of his art. Tufa casting is one of the oldest forms of Native American jewelry. Tufa stone is a porous type of limestone. The tufa stone is carved into the desired shape and designs with a sharp tool, then the artist melts silver and pours it into the cast. Tim uses only the best stones in his work, especially when it comes to turquoise. Tim's artistic skills are amazing, and it shows in every piece he creates.
