Considered to be one of the classic and more easily recognizable American Turquoises, Kingman Turquoise was first mined by Native Americans as early as 600 A.D. This Arizona turquoise rose to fame due to its production of nuggets - which few mines produce. Today, Kingman Turquoise is highly prized and sought after by collectors worldwide.

Overlay refers to the traditional jewelry-making technique of taking the artists design, cutting it out and then attaching it to another piece of metal that is the same size. The recessed areas are then oxidized to provide contrast with the high polished top layer.

Oxidized Sterling Silver is sterling that has been darkened using a surface treatment. This process helps to give the metal a "tarnished" look and is often used to provide contrast within jewelry pieces.

Authentic Handmade Native American Turquoise Jewelry

Darrin Livingston resides in Church Rock, New Mexico, where he has lived most of his life. He currently lives there with his family. Church Rock is where his father and grandfather are from also; this is where he learned his silversmith trade at the age of thirteen. He attended public high school, which he enjoyed, and after graduating he really got serious with the silversmith trade and earned a living from it.A hallmark of Darrin’s jewelry is how is how precisely each piece is constructed and finished. We call this how “clean” the workmanship is. The stones are evenly set into tight fine silver bezels. There are no sharp edges or other careless craftsmanship. His pieces are obviously the work of an artist who takes no shortcuts and whose care for quality of every piece that leaves his studio is professional and complete.From the simplest single stone pendant to the advance design and crafting of a mulit-stone dragonfly necklace, Darrin’s work reflect the best traditional of Navajo silver work and pride.
