Sand Casting is by far my favorite style of metal smithing. The finished look is so smooth and flawless. All our rings are one of kind. Each design and shape is carved into Tofu rock for a one time use. Once the design is perfect we heat silver and pour it into the design. In order to retrieve the metal from the Tofu we have to break the rock in half. Creating a one of a kind piece. Last, we implant(soder) a bezel-ed stone on top. This is a favorite design of mine. Definitely unique and a strong statement. Not Dainty. This ring took 6 hours to make . But Frieda has perfected this craft over the last 40 years.
Arizona produces some of the highest quality of turquoise you can get in the world. Arizona is a copper state. Copper is what turns the turquoise the turquoise a bright blue. This Kingman Turquoise stone is a rich, stunning SKYBLUE. All our stones are hand cut on the Navajo Nation as well. There is no better Quality. Arizona's blue turquoise is by far my favorite shade. Navajo Turquoise increases wealth and good fortune. Not wealth with money but with your family and community.
