Sterling Silver drops, referred to as ‘raindrops’ by Pueblo silversmiths, are also a design element that you will see frequently in Native American handmade jewelry.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is one of the most recognizable of all North American turquoises. Beloved for its solid blue stone with no matrix, and ranging in color from bright royal blue to pale sky blue, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise comes out of the ground near Globe, AZ. As of today, the mine is closed for production, which has greatly increased the value of Sleeping Beauty stone in all forms.
Darrin Livingston resides in Church Rock, New Mexico, where he has lived most of his life. He currently lives there with his family. Church Rock is where his father and grandfather are from also; this is where he learned his silversmith trade at the age of thirteen. He attended public high school, which he enjoyed, and after graduating he really got serious with the silversmith trade and earned a living from it.
A hallmark of Darrin’s jewelry is how is how precisely each piece is constructed and finished. We call this how “clean” the workmanship is. The stones are evenly set into tight fine silver bezels. There are no sharp edges or other careless craftsmanship. His pieces are obviously the work of an artist who takes no shortcuts and whose care for quality of every piece that leaves his studio is professional and complete.
From the simplest single stone pendant to the advance design and crafting of a mulit-stone dragonfly necklace, Darrin’s work reflect the best traditional of Navajo silver work and pride.
