So many of you enjoyed learning about turquoise and seeing high quality natural turquoise stones at our Turquoise Show last year, we decided to feature turquoise again this year. Turquoise has been used by Native Peoples for thousands of years for ceremonies and for adornment. From July 6 -17, The Indian Craft Shop will highlight turquoise jewelry from the Southwest. This is a great time to see an extraordinary selection of classic and contemporary American Indian jewelry set with or made of turquoise. There will be bracelets, rings, necklaces, pins, pendants and earrings made by both emerging and prominent artists from the Hopi, Zuni, Navajo and Santo Domingo Tribes. Some of the favorite U.S.-mined turquoise will include Bisbee, Blue Diamond, Blue Gem, Candelaria, Carico Lake, Cerrillos, Fox, High Lonesome, Indian Mountain, King’s Manassa, Kingman, Lone Mountain, Morenci, Nevada Blue, Number 8, Pilot Mountain, Royston, Sleeping Beauty, Turquoise Mountain and more!
