New Landers Turquoise cuff and ring set - vintage
10.25 ring. Cuff has 1 1/4 opening and a 2.5" wrist.
Some of the most interesting stone I have ever seen. Tons of character; beautiful deep coloration. Just a slight bevel edge on each piece of turquoise. Thick set stones, carefully crafted. Heavy sterling cuff. The metal is quite clean - phone picture makes it look "coppered", but it is not (did not have backlight on these shots).
The artist is Tommy Jackson. Tommy is a second generation Navajo Silversmith from Chinle, Arizona, who has been crafting his art since the '70s. This set may well be over 20 years old .... and just beautiful.
He teaches the next generation how to perpetuate the crafts of his ancestors ... and make them even better.
