Paula says - "Peterson Johnson's work is exceptional. His use of handmade flowers, leaves and vines is distinctive and elegant. The beautiful spiderweb turquoise stone is expertly set in a serrated bezel. Alyce Johnson told us this was Lander Blue Turquoise but the color and matrix makes us think it is more like #8 Turquoise. Regardless, it is a gorgeous polished turquoise cabochon."

Peterson Johnson is a self-taught artist who has won numerous awards throughout the Southwest and whose work is sought by collectors around the world. He was born in 1956 and began creating silverwork in 1976. He is very well known for his traditional Navajo jewelry, which shows meticulous workmanship and has a distinctive Peterson flair.

Peterson is known among fellow artists as "the machine" because he is SO meticulous in every detail of his work. The box clasps on his bracelet watches, for example, are finely tuned works of art. All of his jewelry is crafted with skill and precision to last a lifetime and be passed along to many generations.

Peterson and his wife Alyce live in Gallup, New Mexico and travel to art fairs and pow wows year round throughout the USA displaying Peterson's silver work and Alyce's beadwork.


Spiderweb Turquoise is a term used to describe turquoise that looks like a spiderweb. It is not associated with any one mine, but many mines, some of the most notable being Kingman, Number 8, Lander Blue, Lone Mountain, Candelaria and others. Read more about spiderweb turquoise . . .
