A happenstance view of an ad placed in Cowboys and Indian current issue was fortuitous as a hunting trip to Pagosa Springs the following day had me visiting Lantern Dancer out of curiosity. The manager greeted my son and I cordially then backed off to let us browse. I was impressed with the quantity and quality of the turquoise and workmanship immediately, especially a cobbled Kingman Calvin Begay bracelet. Leanne called Mr Begay to confirm turquoise origin and description, we agreed on a price we both considered fair, and Lantern Dancer had a new customer. Do yourself a favor....whether you're a serious collector or newbie fan of Southwestern jewelry, visit Lantern Dancer.Verified Google Review
