BC 1274 Rectangular stone bracelet by Aaron Toadlena


Aaron Toadlena

Married for over 20 years and has 2 daughters, two sons and a grandson. He lives in Northern Arizona. All his jewelry is stamped with a “handprint” which is the symbol of the creators of the five fingers clan. The ideas and creation of his jewelry evolve when his mind, heart, eyes and hands work in concert. Aaron always creates his work of fine craftsmanship in the late evening or early dawn, when he feels his ideas come together from his soul. He believes his jewelry is a translation of his people “where the streams come together”.


The Kingman mine in northwestern Arizona was one of the largest turquoise mines in North America. The terms “Kingman” or “high blue” refer to the blue color usually displayed in this stone. It has become a color standard in the industry. The mine became famous for its rounded, bright blue nuggets with black matrix. Few turquoise mines produced nuggets, especially of this quality. Old natural Kingman Turquoise is rare. The Colbaugh’s own this mine and the Turquoise Mountain mine, their company name is Colbough Processing. They have recently gone back into the section of the Kingman mine and are digging and bringing some new Natural Kingman Turquoise.

Most artists choose to use a round/oval stone as it is the most efficient way to cut a stone with the least amount of the stone being cut off. In the case a square of rectangular stone, the beginning piece of Turquoise must be much larger than normal to be able to form the stone the correct length and width. This is the ONLY one of these bracelets ever offered. Aaron Toadlena is a Navajo artist’s known for his unusual and highly detailed pieces. He is now retired and this may be one of his last pieces. Measuring 1″3/4″ in width and tapers down to 3/4″. This is a larger bracelet with plenty of size to fit almost any wrist.
