Twisted wire metal working for jewelry making is a very old Navajo technique, and can be found in vintage and Old Pawn jewelry made by Southwestern tribes.

Sterling Silver drops, often referred to as ‘raindrops’ by Pueblo silversmiths, are also a design element that you will see frequently in Native American handmade jewelry.

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.
