Thank you :blush: x


A number of Begay’s and Becenti’s have used that RB mark, it could even an early Running Bear shop mark. I believe I remember something about the R being slightly bigger is significant. Sorry I don’t have more time to investigate this morning.

Here’s what I found in Hougart’s 3d: Richard and Rita Begay, Navajo, channel inlay, mosaic inlay, stamp work; cabochons. Husband and wife share stamp; sometimes the R is larger than the B. Hope this helps!


I’m sure that must be what I was thinking of with the larger R

Would you know the turquoise origin please

Looks to be stabilized Kingman, something like $225.
