This collection is more about the stones than the design, but I'll take credit for the design and let you know a bit about the stones... Royston Ribbon turquoise is from the Boulder mine and was discovered in the 1970s by a herder who came upon a vein of turquoise in the hills. The production of this turquoise is small because of the remote location of the mine, which makes it valuable for its rarity as well as its beauty. These particular stones remind me of Havasu Creek running through the Grand Canyon. A sight to be scene. Made for the river spirit and built to last. Lightweight as always.
