Navajo silversmiths are renowned for their intricate, detailed stamp work, a style developed over many generations. Stamping is done by hand, and the stamps themselves may be unique to the artist or handed in a family of silversmiths.

A staple addition to your Southwest fashion collection, Carico Lake Turquoise is also a collectible North American Turquoise with an astonishing color palette. Ranging from highly unique electric greens to sky blue; from teal to mossy, earthy greens. And rarely, a nugget with both earth and sky color. The highest grade Carico Lake Turquoise is gem-quality American turquoise. Originally known as Stone Cabin, and then Aurora #8, Carico Lake Turquoise has a colorful history for a dried-up lake bed in a remote part of Lander County. The mine has come to rest with the owner of Sunwest Silver Company, Ernest Montoya.

Authentic Handmade Native American Jewelry

Lorenzo Juan began to silversmith in 1969 at 15 years old and hasn’t stopped since. Lorenzo has explored a wide variety of jewelry styles, starting out in his early years with braided silver styles, honing his torch techniques and beginning to execute the high-end jewelry including overlay work that he is recognized for today.One of Lorenzo’s favorite projects involved the petroglyphs from primitive rock art that his Native ancestors left from prehistoric times. Incorporating overlay styles to complete the work, he is satisfied with the extra time and care it took. He tells us, “In the end it is worth the time, because if done right, it looks amazing!”
