Handcrafted by one of my favorite gem cutters from Mid-Michigan. He began cutting stone in his twenties. I met he and his wife at a show. He would save certain stones for me and I would bring him pictures of what I had made with the stone. We were like co-conspirators (or little kids in a candy store sharing a new candy). We would be in a corner pouring over the stones and the details. His wife would laugh at us and other customers would try to see what we were looking at. (Who knew Africa had turquoise?). Unfortunately, he was self-taught and didn't know the dangers of breathing some of the stones when he started out. He joined the Ancestors in his sixties.
May he rest in peace.
