Robin Waynee

Robin Waynee
The Golden Eye is honored to represent the work of artist Robin Waynee. Robin is a member of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian tribe of Michigan. Her work is contemporary, exquisitely crafted, and inspirational to wear. She first began learning her craft from her father, sculptor/jeweler Robert Lone Eagle Waynee.
She moved to New Mexico in 1993. In 1998 she began apprenticing with jewelry designer Ryan Roberts. They are now married, have a studio together in Santa Fe, and are the parents of two young sons. Robin has won first place at SWAIA Indian Market twice, and has also taken first at the prestigious Heard Museum Indian Fair and Market. In 2010 she won first place in the Saul Bell Jewelry Design Competition and in 2012, she took the Grand Prize. She is a featured artist in Nancy Schiffer's book, Masters of Contemporary Indian Jewelry.

Devta Doolan

Devta Doolan
Devta Doolan lives in Portland, Maine, where he creates award-winning, one-of-a-kind pieces. His jewelry features high karat gold settings of bold semi-precious stones. Devta’s work is minimal in embellishments. His earrings and rings are often bezel set with stones of saturated color and innovative faceting.

Devta studied with master metalsmith Tim McCreight at the Worcester Craft Center in Massachusetts. Devta’s confident, elegant designs, inspired by the late Swiss jeweler Andrew Grima, incorporate textured 22 karat gold and the finest pearls, fire opal, black diamonds, agate, tourmaline, Tibetan turquoise, and green jade from his native New Zealand. His aesthetic has always been about simplicity, and his recent work pushes that concept to prominence.

“In my work I strive to create an identity that is both ancient and contemporary. I want to blend disparate elements to create a unified whole. I become myself through my work.”

Johanna Berge

Johanna Berge
Johanna was born and raised in Lake City, Minnesota on the Mississippi River. For most of her life, she has been immersed in her role as a mother, and her career as a physical therapist.

Johanna is an avid fan of the outdoors and derives much fulfillment from hiking, cross country skiing, mountain biking, and spending time with her animals. It was the harmony and balance of nature that inspired her to begin working with precious stones and metals. A trip to the Argyle mine in Australia left her enamored with natural colored diamonds. Her travels to the Middle East added an earthy opulence to her striking designs.

Although Johanna's intention was to express her joy and creativity through her jewelry and share it with a select few, others soon noticed her designs and asked to buy the items she was wearing. Johanna's business grew rapidly by word of mouth and now she finds herself, much to her delight, a full time artist.

Jewelry Info

Turquoise

Turquoise
We sometimes hear someone remark that turquoise jewelry is a "fad", or that they don't wear "Indian jewelry."
Well, if turquoise is a fad, it's got to be the longest running trend ever, as history records its popularity over 7,000 years ago! Archeologists have recorded that the oldest known piece of jewelry is a gold and turquoise bracelet found on the arm of a mummified Egyptian Queen, around 5000 B.C.

The area once known as Persia, today's Iran, has been producing gem quality turquoise for centuries, as has China.
Native Americans have worked the stone since before the time of Christ. When the Navajo, Hopi, and Pueblo people learned silversmithing from the Spaniards in the 1800's, the stone was incorporated into their pieces. This jewelry was the precursor to the work we identify today as Indian jewelry.

Cerrillos, New Mexico is thought to be the location of the oldest turquoise mines in the country. Prior to the 1920's, the state was the country's largest producer; it is more or less exhausted today.

Arizona currently produces the most turquoise of value domestically. Two mines exist in the state; one is the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Globe, the other is the Kingman Mine that operates alongside a copper mine outside of the city. There are many other mines throughout the Southwest, many of which have been exhausted.

Turquoise is made up of phosphorus, copper, and aluminum. The copper is the mineral responsible for the identifying robin's egg blue color that is so valued in the stone.
The mother rock, or matrix, can often be seen running throughout the stone in a network pattern, adding interest and enhancing the beauty of the turquoise.

Most turquoise on the market today has had some kind of treatment to enhance or stabilize the stone. These procedures reduce the value of the stone in varying degrees.
Only about six percent of stones today are what we call "natural turquoise". These have not been altered in any way from their natural state. Stabilizing the turquoise is done by impregnating the stone with an epoxy-type substance to make it more durable.

It is important that when purchasing turquoise jewelry that the salesperson is able to relate if the piece has been treated, or is natural.

Being a phosphate mineral, turquoise is inherently fragile and sensitive to solvents; perfume and other cosmetics will attack the finish and may alter the color of turquoise gems, as will skin oils and most commercial jewelry cleaning fluids. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may discolor or dehydrate turquoise. Care should be taken when wearing such jewels: Cosmetics, sunscreen, and hair spray should be applied before putting on turquoise jewelery.

After use, turquoise should be gently cleaned with a soft cloth to avoid a build up of residue, and should be stored in its own container to avoid being scratched by harder gems. Turquoise can also be adversely affected if stored in an airtight container-it likes to breathe.
