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.

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.

Mined by Native Americans as early as 600 AD, Kingman Turquoise is a classic American Turquoise. The Arizona turquoise mine became famous for its nuggets, which few mines produce. Today, Kingman Turquoise is highly prized and sought after by collectors everywhere, and it's one of the more easily recognized American Turquoises.
