Harrison Jim

He is a Navajo jeweler whose talent is greater than the familiarity of his name. Harrison comes from a long line of jewelers and rug weavers, and began jewelry-making in high school. After graduation he worked with Tommy Jackson, further perfecting his technique.
Harrison likes to make “revival style” jewelry, working from silver ingots formed by melting scraps of sterling, then hammering it out flat. This is becoming a lost art, since it is so labor-intensive. He says he takes a”technical approach” to jewelry fabrication, measuring and planning beforehand.
