TURQUOISE TORTOISE GALLERY CELEBRATES 45 YEARS

1st Friday Gallery Tour: "Embracing the Past: Vintage Jewelry"

August 4, 2017   Opening Reception, 5-8 PM

Vintage sterling silver cuffs, earrings and ring in traditional Native American designs. Available at Turquoise Tortoise Gallery in Sedona, AZ.

In Sedona, Arizona Turquoise Tortoise Gallery puts the spotlight on yesterday and showcases the gallery’s impressive collection of Native American jewelry from the 1970s. Included are necklaces, earrings, pins, pendants, rings and belts. Visitors can enjoy the workmanship and materials that mark the continuing traditions of Native American jewelry artists with turquoise, coral, sterling silver and more available.

Highlights include a disk-bead and tab necklace of delicate green-hued all-natural turquoise from the Royston turquoise mine near Tonapah, Nevada. These strong, lovely stones represent true “Nevada Green” colorations. Another notable necklace is a traditional 3-strand, multi-stone fetish necklace with an array of animals: bear, wolf, turtle and more. There is a hard-to-find 5-strand coral bead necklace and a turquoise seed-bead necklace with over 40 strands. Sterling silver pieces represent a number of traditional Native American techniques including overlay, stamp work, repoussé and more.

 

Stop by Turquoise Tortoise Gallery on 1st Friday evening to enjoy light refreshments and explore all that “Embracing the Past: Vintage Jewelry” has to offer. Exhibition through August 13.
