Dillon Hartman’s Turquoise Jewelry

Gold Turquoise Jewelry by Dillon HartmanDillon Hartman has been making Turquoise Jewelry since he was a small boy learning from his father, prolific Southwestern Jewelry artist John Hartman.  John taught Dillon to hand make Silver Jewelry when Dillon was 8 years old.  At this time John and Estell Hartman had a Jewelry business named “Hartman’s of Durango” where the made Southwestern silver jewelry and Turquoise Jewelry for Cold Water Creek, Zippo Lighter company, and many major department stores.  Dillon Hartman began the process of learning how to make Turquoise Jewelry by helping John Hartman around his silver shop.  Dillon would do odd jobs, helping to assemble jewelry, buff, file, sand, etc. After a few years of learning how to use all the tools and basic skills, John began to teach Dillon the “Lost Wax” casting process. Once proficient in this, Dillon Hartman began to learn how to make basic silver jewelry with hand stamps and hand tools. It was not until 2002 when John Hartman began to teach Dillon to cut Turquoise Cabochons which was the gateway to Dillon making Turquoise Jewelry.
