Stamping to decorate silver is a technique uniquely mastered by Diné silversmiths, who are renowned for their detailed stamp work. Stamps for making jewelry are made from steel or iron, and the hammering of deep stamping is strong physical work. Stamps are often unique to a specific artist, and may have been passed down through a family of silversmiths over many generations.

Blackened or oxidized Sterling Silver is sterling that has been darkened by a surface treatment process which does not change the properties of the Sterling Silver, but gives it the look of metal that has tarnished over time.  

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.
