Making Turquoise Beads

Bead MakingTurquoise Bead Making

Making Turquoise Beads has been going on worldwide for thousands of years.

Making Beads is an ancient art form which dates back to the beginning of modern man, well over 7,000 years ago. Bead making began when native peoples of the world ground colourful stones on hard rocks to create a round bead for a ritual or self adornment. Beaded making tools probably started around 3,000 B.C. and actually became fairly safisticated by 1,000 A.D. Bead Making was very strong in the days of Columbus as Trade Ships would use all types of glass beads as ballasts in the ships. Making beads has been an important trade for hundreds of years.

Making Turquoise Beads began around 5,000 years ago in Egypt and has continued to date. We have a great video on how to make Turquoise beads from raw material to the finished bead. You can see our Turquoise Bead Making Video here.

Turquoise Information

 

Turquoise News

Durango Silver Company has been in the Turquoise business for nearly forty years now and has contributed a lot of important information as well as quality Turquoise Jewelry to the market. We have been educating individuals with a series of Turquoise Videos and informational pages which are located in our Learning Center on DurangoSilver.com.

We feel we have been putting up more educational  information on Turquoise Jewelry than any other company out there on the Internet so we have decided to initiate a new website that is dedicated to News and Information on Turquoise and Turquoise related topics. This new site will be located at TurquoiseNews.com – Dillon and John Hartman will be the editors and will put up important news and information strictly related to the Turquoise and Turquoise Jewelry industry on a daily basis.

We look forward in producing this site and will soon be inviting ours Turquoise business associates to furnish Turquoise News to publish as well as our own.
