This ring features sterling silver overlaid with 14kt gold and a natural Lone Mountain turquoise stone set in a 14kt gold bezel, Wichita Artist, Dina Huntinghorse. Dina actually mined the turquoise herself at the Lone Mountain Mine in Nevada.
Wichita jewelry designer Dina Huntinghorse incorporates a blend of traditional and contemporary jewelry techniques to create masterful works of wearable art. Although gold and silver work is rarely seen among the tribes of the Great Plains, Dina’s life experiences introduced her to the craft, and inspired her to develop her own unique style.
In 1989, her interest in jewelry was piqued when her husband, Navajo jeweler Herbert Taylor, taught her to cut beads and do inlay work. Dina began making jewelry on her own in 1996. Her work is featured in galleries throughout the southwest, and she is a regular participant at the Heard Museum Market and the Santa Fe Indian Market.
