Product Description

ZUNI TRIBE ARTIST LARRY LORETTO HANDCRAFTED INLAY BRACELET

Kingman Turquoise originates in the Mineral Park Mining District near Kingman, Arizona. One of the largest domestic turquoise mines, it is found in a large open pit copper mine in the high desert country. The Kingman Mine district was first mined by Native Americans; it was part of the most extensive prehistoric workings in Arizona.


LARRY LORETTO:

Larry Loretto learned by both watching and also some guidance from his brother-in-law, Johnny Coonsis.  In fact there is some resemblance in Larry’s earlier designs with those of his mentor. Larry’s earlier designs were also similar, but easily distinguishable from, to those of Troy Natachu. Over the past fifteen years, Larry has been quite productive as the demand for his designs has grown.

Larry lives in Zuni and is currently trying to interest his 20 year old son, Shane, to work with him.
