It’s that time of year where we look forward and plan for Christmas.  Don’t wait till the last minute or you could be too late!  Order early and allow time for manufacturing and shipping.

I finally bit the bullet, and after many requests I started a Facebook Page.   Look for Southwest Originals on Facebook!  Friend me!

I will be away for a few days to spend some time with my wife Kelli starting on 2-21-13 .  I will answer your questions, when I can, the best I can…. but don’t count on it…..  (I don’t want to get in trouble with the boss)

Yes, the rumors are true. The Sleeping Beauty mine in Arizona is officially closed. The stone has run out. The blue Turquoise of the world is getting more scarce every year. Lucky I have great resources for stone!

Countdown to Christmas!

It’s hard to believe, but it’s already time to begin that yearly planned countdown to December 25th.  As you might already know, I custom make most of my designs which usually takes 4 weeks.  Please keep that in mind when planning on a gift for Christmas.

Welcome!
