Artists: Robert and Bernice Leekya

RLB is the hallmark of husband and wife team Robert and Bernice Leekya. Robert was born in 1934, and was taught the art of silversmithing by his father, the esteemed Leekya Deyuse (1889-1966) during the 1940s. Robert started working in his signature nugget style in 1953. He won many awards in his lifetime for his cluster work using high quality nugget stones. Unfortunately Robert has passed away but is survived by his wife, Bernice. 

Bernice Leekya is the daughter of zuni artists Doris Ondelacy and Wayne Ondelacy, who taught her inlay and cluster work, her favorite designs being Knife wing and Rainbow Man.

Robert and Bernice Leekya made beautiful bracelets, nugget watches, bolos, belt buckles, and belts together since the 1960s. Their favorite materials to work with were high-quality Kingman stones and heavy sterling silver (18-26 gauge).

 

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise: This stone is truly one of our (and our artists) favorites. It was found in Globe, Arizona, specifically at the Sleeping Beauty Mine, and is revered for sometimes lacking something that makes most other types stand out: it’s webbing or veining. The highest-quality pieces are as pure as a cloudless New Mexico Sky, and at its finest, Sleeping Beauty will make you forget how turquoise got its reputation as sort of a patchwork stone of different colors. The mine is no longer in operation and Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is more in demand than ever due to its scarcity and beautiful color.
