Certified Kingman Turquoise
Direct from the Kingman Mine
The Kingman Mine is the last operational turquoise mine in the United States. Most turquoise now comes from overseas. Some of it is real... some is fake. With Kingman Turquoise... you know it's real. We pick out each piece individually at the mine and then bring them home to make them into these beautiful necklaces.
Why Wear Silver & Turquoise
Turquoise Tells The Holy People You Know Where You Came From
The legends say... turquoise is meant to remind us of our existence in the Blue World. The Blue World is the second in the teachings of the four worlds. It has a few different names: The Second World, The Blue World, The Spirit World, and The World With No Surface. Turquoise is said to offer protection. To identify to the Holy People, the Five-Fingered beings who know where they come from. Our Navajo Historian, Wally Brown, uses his necklace to teach about the symbolism of turquoise.
Meet The Artist
Navajo Traditional Teachings Originals
All of our pieces listed as "Navajo Traditional Teachings Originals" are either made by Wally or his son Shane.
Wally was born an artist. He learned to Silversmith from his father and has enjoyed many forms of art throughout his life including singing, playing the guitar, painting, carving, silversmithing, beading, and much more.
Since 2016 after his stroke, he has lost most mobility in his left hand which has caused him to slow down in creating beautiful jewelry. It has also stirred the desire for him to teach his talents to his children.
Shane has inherited a lot of his artistic talents from his father and practices and learns new skills constantly. He finds Native American jewelry-making and other skills he has learned from his father very rewarding and loves sharing them with you.
“...that large turquoise piece in Roy Huskies pendant Islands is the most beautiful turquoise I've ever seen. and being born and always living in S.W. Oklahoma Native Country I've seen plenty. I've got to take a picture of it. It just grabs me and I love to just look and admire it.”
“Thank you for sharing your teachings and culture. I find Wally's films really great to watch and I love his no nonsense way of explaining. Please can I have a notification when your new Turquoise jewelry is ready for purchase.”
“This afternoon, I had a discussion with my niece and nephew about wearing turquoise and why it’s important especially when we do not reside in the four scared mountains. I didn’t know all the other details mentioned... now I can provide more context to my niece and nephew about wearing turquoise and silver when I see them again.”
