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.

Cabochons for Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry

Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry

You may or may not know that this color of natural Turquoise is very hard to come by.  This type of Emerald Green or Forest Green Turquoise has always been hard to find, but is becoming even harder to find these days as almost all the Turquoise mines world wide have been shut down for one reason or another.  Having said that, the Military Green Turquoise is one of the most famous looks from the Royston Turquoise mine in Nevada, USA.

Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry

Just like the Turquoise its self, Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry is very hard to come by due to the lack of Turquoise cabochons available to jewelers as well as the fact that most jewelers prefer to use blue Turquoise over any other color of Turquoise. Here at Durango Silver Company that is not the case.  We love to make jewelry with natural green Turquoise from Lime Green Turquoise Jewelry to Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry.  So when you are in need of some rare Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry or any other color of Turquoise Jewelry keep us in mind.
