The origins of Claim Post Design Co...
Born and raised right here in the Southwest, Clint Rusing has spent a lifetime surrounded by great turquoise jewelry. His grandfather had an amazing collection of bolo ties that he would wear at every special occasion. That appreciation for American Southwest jewelry was passed down to Clint. As time has gone on, that appreciation has led Clint on an adventure to the heart of turquoise country...Tonopah, Nevada.
Working closely with friends and local miners, Clint has been afforded an education on turquoise mining that could not be found anywhere in the world. Before long his hands were dirty and back sore, as he began to work several of his own turquoise claims in search of amazing natural turquoise. To be able to go out into the rugged hills of Nevada and dig up such a beautiful stone and to see it set into breathtaking jewelry is so rewarding. It makes the hard work worth it!
We hope to build relationships with customers and artists that last a lifetime. To share our turquoise and those of the miners we still work with, we have created a classic jewelry line that allows you to be a part of the turquoise adventure we continue to live everyday.
"I started Claim Post Design Co because I wanted to bring customers the finest silver and turquoise jewelry made by some of the best silversmiths in the American Southwest! We love mining beautiful turquoise, working directly with the artists and seeing amazing jewelry going to great homes of people who truly appreciate the craftsmanship and hard work that go into each piece. It's been a wild journey but I wouldn't have it any other way!"
