The new Stardust Collection by David Rosales is a remarkable blend of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design, embodied in stunning jewelry. Each piece from this collection is a testimony to the exceptional skill of the Navajo Native American jewelry artists. David Rosales, known for his unique color collections, has once again created a collection that is as impressive as it is beautiful.
These dangly earrings pack a lot of color in a narrow package. The blue topaz stones on top adds extra pizzazz.
The Stardust Collection is defined by its intricate inlay work, which features a blend of Kingman turquoise, Picasso opal, cultured opal, and black jade. The black jade is used to give the other stones a contrasting separation. These stones are carefully selected to create a visually stunning palette that is reminiscent of a bright star, hence the name Stardust. The Kingman turquoise, known for its enchanting color, is a cornerstone of this collection. Mined from one of the oldest and largest turquoise mines in America, the Kingman Turquoise Mine in northwestern Arizona, it brings a touch of the serene desert sky to each piece.
The meticulous craftsmanship required to bring the Stardust Collection to life cannot be overstated. Each stone is hand-cut and inlaid by a team of highly skilled Native American artists led by David Rosales. Believe it or not, some of these jewelry pieces have more than one hundred individual stones that have been cut and inlaid together. This work is so intricate that David only has one artist who has the skill to inlay with this level of precision. The process demands an immense level of skill and time, contributing to the exclusivity and allure of the collection. The unique inlay work is not just about placing stones together; it’s about telling a story, evoking emotions, and showcasing their rich artistic talent. Every tiny stone is meticulously inlaid, creating designs that are both striking and elegant, with vibrant colors that sparkle brilliantly in the sunlight.

This balance between beauty and complexity is a hallmark of the Stardust Collection, making each piece a wearable work of art. And it's not just about aesthetics; the collection reflects a deep appreciation for the workmanship and skills of Native American artists. All of David Rosales' jewelry is fabulous, but the Stardust Collection is takes Native American jewelry to a new level.
David Rosales' collections, including Stardust, are a result of a collaborative effort between him and over thirty Native American silversmiths and craftspeople from the Navajo tribe in New Mexico. Their collective expertise has resulted in jewelry that is wonderfully colorful and carries the rich culture of the Native American community. Their contemporary take on traditional inlay work sets them apart from many other artists. The Stardust Collection is their latest stunning innovation.
