Navajo Jewelry

My family has been making all forms of jewelry for generations. I learned to be a silversmith from my Mother who has been making jewelry for 35 years. Making handcrafted jewelry has always been a way of life of our forefathers and the gift and talent has been entrusted to us and in turn, we should teach our children and only hope they leave it to theirs.

Bisbee Turquoise

The Bisbee mine the Lavender Pit near Bisbee Arizona is one of the most famous of the American mines because Bisbee turquoise was one of the first put onto the market. Bisbee turquoise has developed a reputation as a hard, finely webbed or dendrite, high blue stone known for its chocolate brown matrix. Bisbee Turquoise also comes in a beautiful dark green color. The green turquoise is very rare and hard

Stone meanings:

Turquoise - Reminds us of our spiritual nature, gives protection, stone of friendship. If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. It also brings peace to the home. Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. It is one of the oldest stones known.

Coral - Energy and passion. Coral symbolizes life and blood force energy. Dark red coral is used for heating and stimulating the bloodstream. Pink shades restore harmony to the heart. It is used as an aid to depression, lethargy or deficient nutrition. Good for keeping thoughts in control for visualization and while meditating, helps arthritis.

Heishi - The origin of heishi is directly linked to the ancient Kewa Pueblo people (formerly Santa Domingo Pueblo), the people most skilled in its fabrication. The first people to make shell necklaces were those of the Hohokam culture who lived as long as ten thousand years ago in the area of modern-day Tucson , Arizona . They traded and mixed with the Anasazi, “cliff dwellers,” whose members are believed to be the ancestors of the present day Pueblo inhabitants.

Silver - Wear silver jewelry to improve fertility, emotional and hormonal stability.
