Kenneth Johnson Sterling Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Enhancer
I can't believe I waited so long...
...to order this enhancer. I'm usually drawn to more gem-centric pieces, but I fell in love with the oxidized medallion look here with subtle pops of color. And boy do the turq stones pop! They are the deepest, clearest blue you can imagine. This piece is weighty and I love the contrast between the high polished rays and the antiqued texturing. The bail is huge and it's so cool that the intricate design continues up and over it. To me, this enhancer begs to be worn long on a nice, thick CP chain. But I can also see it worn up high on turq beads. A winner!
I am very happy with my first Kenneth Johnson purchase! The workmanship is excellent. This was on my wish list after it's premere. I was thrilled when the price was reduced making it affordable for me. Great weight and quality. Hope to see more from Kenneth Johnson.
Not as Pictured
I love the silver work on this weighty piece. I was disappointed to receive an enhancer that had such light oxidation that it did not show up at all. This greatly diminishes the effect of the detail.
I don't think I can out-do any of the previous reviews so I'll just say this. I bought two other sleeping beauty enhancers during the 4th of July show,( the diamond shaped enhancer and the cross). While they were both beautiful, neither caused me to gasp when I opened the box as Kenneth Johnson's enhancer did. I was dissappointed when I couldn't buy the large Naja enhancer for 450.00,but not anymore! I think this is the best piece in the American West collection hands down, and I hope I can buy more of his pieces in the future. I am a lucky girl to have gotten one of these enhancers!

If you can, splurge and get this one!! This is the first large enhancer that I have ever owned so I did't know whether I would like the size or not but when I received it and saw it with my own eyes I knew it was a keeper. I put it on my black AW toggle cord and It was love at first sight!!! The workmanship in this piece is so beautiful and it really stands out and what more can you say about the gorgeous sleeping beauty stones they speak for themselves.I will definitely be buying more AW large enhancers. I am so glad I splurged.
Perfect Native Design
I have had this pendant two weeks and have worn it nearly every minute since. It is perfect. It's a weighty piece, but not so heavy as to feel cumbersome. It is domed so it won't stick to my skin on a hot day. It has texture because the design is layered. I love the sacred hoop (medicine wheel) in the center of the design. It has everything I believe in it. I might wear something else for an occasion, but this will go right back on at the end of the day. .Oh, and of course the Sleeping Beauty Mine turquoise is perfect.
I'd love a medicine wheel ring to go with it!!! Please!
This is a beautiful piece. Substantial, and well made. I am so glad that this is an enhancer! I can wear it on pretty much anything. I now have the enhancer and the ring. Next purchase, the cuff!! Please keep adding Native American artists Carolyn.. I have an extensive collection of signed pieces. I love it when I get a compliment from someone on a piece I am wearing and I can tell them exactly who made it and that they are Native American.
The pictures do not do this piece justice. It's beautifully made, and will be wonderful with sweaters next winter on a longer chain or necklace, yet beautiful against the skin this summer.
This enhancer is very detailed and very well done. I do wish the backside had been finished a little more nicely. I feel privileged to own a piece of Kenneth Johnson jewelry! Please bring more to QVC!
Picture does not do justice. When I saw it in person, (all I can say is), WOW - WORTH EVERY PENNY.
When I saw Kenneth Johnson was going to be on QVC again after so many years, I was excited. Viewed it online, the day before it aired and ordered immediately on Easy Does it Day(which helped with price). The silver work is exquisite and the Sleeping Beauty stones are lovely(really like the size of the the stones for the piece, fits perfectly). I have a copper and silver sun pendant I bought from Kenneth on QVC when there used to be the Native American shows. I wore it to Santa Fe last year and received many compliments from the local Native American artists. Though this is a large pendant it is not heavy. Please continue to bring us more Kenneth and Native American pieces.
