David Tune is a member of the Creek and Navajo Tribes. David began his professional career as a jewelry craftsman in 1976, when he was commissioned to design a jewelry ensemble for the National March of Dimes Poster Child and Past President Ford Senate, from this inspiration he decided to allow his creativity to flow and has created and constructed some of the finest masterpieces of authentic Native American Indian jewelry with a contemporary flare. He was forced to resign himself from his art due to a difficult battle with cancer in 1987, but he was cured of his cancer with assistance from his Uncle and with pride and self-determination he returned to his passion of hand crafting beautiful masterpieces of fine jewelry.
Golden Hill turquoise surrounded by sterling silver overlay designs. The Altyn-Tyube ("Golden Hill" in the Kazakh language) mountain range is located in Kazakhstan about 200 miles South of the Russian border. This is where the original Golden Hill mine is located. Another 200 or so miles South brings us to the more recently discovered Lavender mine. While both produce similar material, the Lavender mine tends to produce more turquoise with spiderwebbing. The rough turquoise from both mines tends to get mixed together, so all of the material is generally marketed as Golden Hill turquoise.
This piece is signed by the Navajo artist.
