Arland Ben invented the use of small 14K or 18K gold petroglyph images overlaid on sterling silver to create unique and visually stunning jewelry. He also works in only gold. Arland uses the highest grade natural turquoise to be found in this country. We have been trading with Arland since the early 1990s, supplying him with much of the gem grade turquoise he uses in his complex and beautiful work. Arland has won first in Santa Fe Indian Market and is considered one of the finest and most collectible artists of today.
