John Hartman has been in the Turquoise Jewelry business most of his life. In 1969, John and Estell Hartman went mining near Battle Mountain, Nevada with the owner of the Stormy Mountain Turquoise Mine, Cutler Edgar and mined this beautiful and very scarce Stormy Mountain Turquoise. They cut these stones along with hundreds of others which they made into Silver Jewelry in the 1970’s.

When traveling through Kalispel, Montana John traded for these Kodiak Bear Claws from a Taxidermist. Kodiak Bear Claws were difficult to find then and must be today.
John recently made this wonderful Bear Claw Necklace as a show piece and in remembrance of his work from the past. In the mid 1970’s John had made Bear Claw Jewelry for Bing Crosby, Waylon Jennings and for major football players as well as movie stars. Over a course of about 3 years John says he had set over 4000 bear claws into Silver Jewelry.
This Stormy Mountain Turquoise Bear Claw Necklaceis truly one of a kind and a very special piece of Western Silver Jewelry.
