HUGE Sterling Sleeping Beauty Dragonfly Pin Pendant Handmade Signed Lee Charlie
This pin/pendant features 15 beautiful, sky blue and very rare AAA Grade sleeping beauty turquoise cabs (rare, polished, natural). This is a statement piece dragonfly made by Lee Charlie.
Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes in a pure sky blue or robin's egg blue color and is relatively stable and suitable for jewelry making.
The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine, located in Globe, Arizona, is one of the most famous turquoise mines and produces some of the most desirable turquoise in the world due to the purity of its color. The mine closed for a second time (first time in the early 1960s) in August 2012, which has skyrocketed the price of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.
The mine's name comes from the mountain the mine is located in, which from far away looks like a sleeping woman lying on her back with her arms crossed.
Lee Charlie, Jr. was born to the Navajo tribe in 1968, Lee and is a proud member of the Deer Water Clan. His mother Nellie Charley was his silversmithing teacher and started him working at a very young age helping her prepare jewelry orders she was working on. Lee has produced his own unique jewelry professionally since 1992. His work, particularly his masterful dragonfly jewelry is featured in premier galleries across the country and is highly prized by top collectors of Native jewelry and art.
I choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted).
I also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment.
3-1/2" X 5"
