Apache's Tear:
Apache's Tears are so unique, held in your hand it looks like a black stone but held to the light you can see inside it! The wire is copper plated with fine silver and finished with a non-tarnish coating. This Tear has Turquoise dangles with a pewter arrow head charm. This pendant comes with a card of the legend.

The Legend: After the Pinal Apaches had made several raids on a settlement in Arizona, to steal cattle, the military along with some volunteers tracked the stolen cattle, and waited for the Apache until dawn at the treacherous face of the Cliff Big Pacacho. The Apache, because of the location never thought they would be attacked from there, and were surprised, and outnumbered so much that 50 of them were shot to death, and the rest of the 25 Apache men jumped off the edge of the cliff rather than to be killed by the white man. Hence the cliff's name was changed to Apache Leap in the 1800's. A short distance from the bottom of the cliff, the widows were crying for their dead, they mourned so hard, that their God "The Great Spirit" put their tears into the black translucent stone. If you look through the tear stone, you can see the translucent tear inside.

The stones are said to bring luck to the owner , and whoever has one never has to cry again, since the Apache Women did the crying in their place. They are also suppose to bring emotional balance, and protect one from being taken advantage of. It is used to produce clear visions, psychic powers, and can be worn as an amulet for protection. Only translucent merikanites from Superior can truly be called Apache Tears. Naturally Semi-tumbled.

Frequently asked questions about NoStoneLeftUnturned

I have no idea how to personalize something I make but if you do let me know.
For custom orders I require a non refundable deposit of half of the agreed upon price. I expect that you know exactly what you want and are able to communicate that to me (make me understand). Once a designed is agreed upon there's no going back (I won't make it over and over until you think it's right).
If you provide any supplies (stones, beads, wire etc) and don't pay the balance upon completion I keep the deposit and all supplies provided.
I try to provide a good description of size but sometimes I get excited and forget, if you have any questions about size feel free to send me a message.
Raw copper and Brass pieces...if it's very dirty (something spilled on it, dropped in mud etc) give it a scrub with an old toothbrush and dish soap be sure to dry it well before putting it away. To keep the shiny parts shiny give it a rub with a polishing cloth as needed.

Plated copper pieces...I use a high quality wire called Parawire, it's copper wire that is plated in fine silver and given an anti tarnish coating from the factory, designed to be permanent. If it gets dirty you want to wash it gently as it is plated but the coating does make it more durable, a tooth brush and dish soap will work, DO NOT polish.
