Kingman Turquoise Sterling Silver Bolo & Belt Buckle Set by Zuni Master Craftsman Robert Leekya.
We are fortunate to receive one of the last creations by Robert Leekya, he created this piece before retirement.
Robert Leekya is the son of famous fetish carver Leekya Deyuse. When his children entered school, Leekya requested that they take his first name as their surname. All of his children (Alice, Sarah, Elizabeth, Robert and Roger) did so. Robert and his brother Roger and sister Elizabeth became silversmiths. His sisters Alice Leekya Homer and Sarah Leekya (Homer) are known as fetish carvers.
Kingman Turquoise comes from Mohave County, Arizona The Kingman Mine produces bright blue stones with white and black matrix. It is considered by many to have produced the best turquoise in North America. The terms "Kingman" and "high blue" refer to high quality hard turquoise like that of the Kingman mine. Old authentic natural Kingman turquoise is extremely rare.
This is a very collectible and desirable set. A worthy addition to any collection.
