As you may have heard, Ben Nighthorse recently delivered the US Capitol Christmas Tree to Washington D.C. Now back at home in Southwest Colorado, Ben is creating beautiful new designs just in time for Santa. See what the former senator has been up to!
Take a look at these beautiful new Ben Nighthorse gaspeite “Double Circle” dangling earrings. Gaspeite, which comes from a mine in Australia, is now an extremely rare stone as the mines are tapped out. Ben has used this rare green stone to create a pair of earrings that remind us of Spring and Summer while the snow falls. Light weight, easy to wear, and fun!!!
Horse lovers will delight in this new “Horse Head Pendant”. Inlaid with black jade, white mother of pearl, red sponge coral, lapis and Chinese turquoise, this pendant reverses to a stippled sterling silver mélange of 6 small horses, a star, lightening bolt and a pine tree. Inlaid beauty combined into elegance!
For our Sorrel Sky Gentlemen who like sterling silver with a splash of color in the middle, Ben just created the “Rectangle Island Ring.” With a background of Ben’s trademark white stifled sterling silver, he highlights lapis, rosarita red, opal and turquoise set with sterling silver channels. Handsome is as handsome does!! And this is Handsome!
To fly us into the holiday season, these new and beautiful “Rearing To Go” rosarita and black onyx earrings shout “FUN”! Tear dropped shaped, 2 inches long and one inch wide of dangly, beautiful earring, perfectly fit for holiday wear.
