Steven has been hand selecting rough turquoise from mines for the past 20 years. These mines are located in Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and other mines from around the world. He has been in search of high-quality turquoise to produce some of the most beautiful, and sometimes most rare turquoise cabochons in the market. His cabochons have been purchased from collectors and manufactures throughout the country. Steven is a third generation stone cutter from the Smith family, currently working side by side with his daughter, Stephanie O’Kane, and his son, Jeremy Smith, to teach them the skills he has perfected. They continue to produce top-quality cabochons from some of the best turquoise that Mother-Nature provides.
