In what has become an annual event, Sedona's Turquoise Tortoise Gallery celebrates "1st Friday" on July 6, from 5 to 8 pm, by showcasing its wide selection of jewelry in Traditional and Contemporary Southwest styles. Whether it's turquoise against white linen or sterling silver with jeans, this is the season to make the most of all the fine natural stones that look so great with summer's styles - for both women and men.

What distinguishes the extensive collection at this 41-year-old Native American and Southwest gallery is that the gallery has many jewelers whom it has worked with for decades and, indeed, generations. One of the prominent families of Navajo jewelers are the Listers: Alice and David with daughters Dee Nez and Davi Lister all create pieces for Turquoise Tortoise Gallery that reflect their well-deserved reputation.

"Many, many of the fine Navajo jewelers have known us a very long time and we can count on them to bring us their finest work," Gallery Owner Peggy Lanning notes.

Mummy's Bundle jewelry has been with the gallery for well over a decade and the gallery's fine selection reflects this established relationship. Leo Feeney is one of the prominent Southwest jewelers whose work is presented by the gallery - and sought after by collectors. Whether it's the greens and blues of turquoise, purple sugilite, green gaspeite, even red corals and orange or purple spiny oyster shell - exquisitely set in sterling silver (or, if you like, gold) - it is offered here, all in a wide range of prices to suit most anyone.

The exhibition runs through July 15. Turquoise Tortoise Gallery is located at Hozho in the heart of Sedona's Gallery District. For information, call 928/282-2262 and to see photos, visit the gallery's Facebook page (/TurquoiseTortoiseGallerySedona) - and offer your comments! Or visit www.turquoisetortoisegallery.com.
