Sterling Natural Sleeping Beauty Cluster Earrings Emma Lincoln Navajo Signed. Stone: These earrings feature cluster style beautiful, sky blue and very rare AAA Grade all natural sleeping beauty turquoise cabs (rare, polished, natural). Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes in a pure sky blue or robin's egg blue color and is relatively stable and suitable for jewelry making. The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine, located in Globe, Arizona, is one of the most famous turquoise mines and produces some of the most desirable turquoise in the world due to the purity of its color. The mine closed for a second time (first time in the early 1960s) in August 2012, which has skyrocketed the price of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.The mine's name comes from the mountain the mine is located in, which from far away looks like a sleeping woman lying on her back with her arms crossed. Artist: Emma Lincoln is a renowned Navajo silversmith and jewelry maker. She was born in Brigham City, Utah and was raised in Vanderwagon, New Mexico. Today, she works as a master silversmith in Gallup, New Mexico. After her husband passed away, this is how she supports her 5 children.
She started practicing the art of silversmithing when she was 15 years old. Emma's love for silversmithing and creativity has made her one of our favorite artists. Unfortunately Emma left us in early 2016. Anything that is still available at Toqos were the last ones made before she passed : My Philosophy: I choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone.
Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted). I also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment. Measurements: 2-1/2 inches in length.
3/4 inch at the widest. Stone Measurements: Cluster of mini stones.
