Heritage Collection pieces are made with turquoise purchased directly from the mine, the stones are artistically cut, cabbed and set right here in our studio by my husband, John. Once he's finished working his magic with the stone, I design a piece of jewelry that we think best fits the stone's unique qualities. Kingman turquoise comes in a variety of shades, from a deep green to a bright blue to a deep blue and with a variety of matrix colors from golden to a rich brown to black - and some with pyrite and bronze inclusions.
Inspired by my childhood in the American Southwest, time spent in Navajo and Hopi country, the Heritage Collection is a revolving, evolving one of a kind collection of raw, earthy, southwestern style jewelry. Made with solid sterling silver, ancient bronze, Kingman turquoise, and freshwater pearls, this collection is truly unique.
Influenced by the family of strong women that I was born into, I grew up seeing my mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunts, Mama T-Bird and more wearing amazing traditional Native American jewelry. In that same spirit, but in a style all my own, the Heritage Collection was born.
