Cluster Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Sterling Earrings Handmade by Bobby Johnson
RARE Authentic Cluster Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Sterling Earrings Handmade by Bobby Johnson. These petit cluster earrings are handmade by Navajo artist Bobby Johnson. The pair features 8 natural AAA grade sleeping beauty turquoise. Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes in a pure sky blue or robin’s egg blue color and is relatively stable and suitable for jewelry making. The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine, located in Globe, Arizona, is one of the most famous turquoise mines and produces some of the most desirable turquoise in the world due to the purity of its color. The mine closed for a second time (first time in the early 1960s) in August 2012, which has skyrocketed the price of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. The mine’s name comes from the mountain the mine is located in, which from far away looks like a sleeping woman lying on her back with her arms crossed. Bobby Johnson is longtime Navajo silversmith. He was born in Church Rock, New Mexico. He learned the tricks of the trade from his brothers and sisters who were master silversmiths. He began to silversmith in the early 1970’s and his passion for the craft has led him to create amazing jewelry throughout the years. I choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted). I also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment. The earrings measure 1-1/4 inches long and 1 inch wide. I take all photos under natural light (without photoshop) to make sure the jewelries look as realistic as possible. All packages are insured. If you’re unsure about caring of your jewelry, wonder if it’s right for you or have any other questions. Don’t hesitate – just message me. New 100% Navajo Handmade.
