Product Description

Sterling Silver handmade pin with lovely stamping is signed H. Harvey and the Rocking Horse Ranch sign.

Rocking Horse Ranch was originally a ranch in Phoenix owned by the parents of Lani Mastrangel. After marrying Kevin Randall in 1968 and a stint for Kevin in the Vietnam war, Lani and he began producing high quality silver jewelry at the ranch. They began by hiring talented Navajo silversmiths, including Edison Smith, who was very interested in the early Navajo “master silversmiths.” Thomas and Wilson Jim, Thomas Curtis, Fidel Bahe, and Curtis Pete also worked there and learned the craft of the “master silversmiths.” Rocking Horse Ranch concentrated primarily on making concho belts and the artists there were instrumental in revitalizing the design and techniques of the early 1900s. Sadly, both Lani and Kevin have passed away. They helped some of the contemporary Navajo smiths become the finest smiths of the last 30 years.
