Sterling Silver beads with a stunning high-polish and a Carico Lake Turquoise cluster pendant by Navajo silversmith Marvin McReeves are a versatile combination.

The pendant is done in a traditional style of arranging stones that has been used by Native American silversmiths for many generations, referred to as cluster design. Clusters might be in rows, or organically arranging softer, natural stone shapes. Beads, in all their variety, are one of the oldest forms of adornment found as artifacts around the world, and it is believed that Native American tribes have been making beads since pre-history. Turquoise beads are often handed down for many generations.

Carico Lake Turquoise has 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.
