Description

This gorgeous pair of earrings by Tommy Jackson features pieces of Hachita Turquoise, surrounded by a masterfully crafted and polished sterling silver setting, stamped with the artist’s trademark on the back.

Internationally known Navajo jewelry designer Tommy Jackson, from Chinle, Arizona, is known for merging traditional Navajo designs with modern-day aesthetics in his dynamic jewelry. He learned the art of silversmithing from his parents, Martha and Gene Jackson.

Hachita Turquoise is from a group of mines near Old Hachita, Grant County, New Mexico. They include the Azure, Cameo, Galilee, and Aztec claims. The name “Hachita” comes from the Spanish term for “Little Hatchet”. The small town itself was located in the foothills of the Little Hatchet Mountains in the Hachita Valley of New Mexico. The turquoise deposits lie in a location known as Turquoise Mountain about 6 mile west of the town.
