Ithaca Peak turquoise comes from the Cerbat Mountains in Mohave County, Arizona. The Ithaca Peak mine has produced some of the best turquoise in the country. This natural cabochon is graced with a beautiful pastel background enhanced with darker blue areas called "water web.” The golden Limonite matrix adds much character to the stone. This wonderful cabochon was presented to Navajo jeweler Verdy Jake to design a bracelet worthy of its unique beauty. As usual, Verdy exceeded expectations by creating this carved, stamped, and sawed setting. Verde is a master artist; her work is clean and well organized. Verdy's bracelet is entirely hand-fabricated, and her detail and finish work are extraordinary. 

About the artist:

The jewelry created by Navajo silversmith Verdy Jake reflects Southwest jewelry classicism at its best.  Showcasing high quality turquoise and coral with substantial silver work, she intuits a perfect balance between precious metal and precious stone.
