Eugene Livingston has been practicing the twin arts of silversmithing and lapidary for over 40 years, and we believe he has it down pat. Eugene began this particular process by cutting small pieces of Kingman turquoise nuggets, then shaping and polishing them into small cabochons. Next Eugene takes silver sheet, wire and bezel, and crafts it into a cuff of singular beauty. He sets the stones and polishes the bracelet until it glows like a silvery moon. Sky stone and moon glow is a nice way to describe Eugene's handiwork.

Eugene Livingston - Navajo Jewelry
Eugene is one of those rare artists who has mastered not just one or two methods, but a myriad of jewelry techniques. As a young man, he trained under other talented silversmiths After many decades of steady work, Eugene is skilled at metal fabrication, casting, making his own silver ingots, and most importantly for his work, the ability to cut stones. In his work below, you will see beautiful cut teardrop and pyramid cut Sleeping Beauty turquoise and coral. His two newest pieces with Carico Lake turquoise demonstrate his mastery of silver stamp work.
