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.

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is one of the most recognizable of all North American turquoises. Beloved for its solid blue stone with no matrix, and ranging in color from bright royal blue to pale sky blue, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise comes out of the ground near Globe, AZ. As of today, the mine is closed for production, which has greatly increased the value of Sleeping Beauty stone in all forms.
