Gallup, New Mexico is dedicated to Native American art. You will find several businesses that sell turquoise jewelry. It wasn't that long ago when you could make the rounds and see several bracelets just like this, big rocks and heavy silver. The times have definitely changed. Turquoise is becoming more difficult to source and the prices just keep going up. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise isn't even mined anymore, meaning big nuggets like this have to be found in the old pieces. You just have to take a look at these three stones and know that they are special. Deep blue color, thick nugget cuts and matrix give them that classic look. They have found a home in this heavy silver creation that is two big triangle wires and thick hammered twisted wire along with some stamping.
