Herman Smith

Herman Smith is cousin of Calvin Martinez, another silversmith noted for his fine hand stamp work. Herman works mostly in the traditional revival style. His work often has a lightly brushed finish and careful oxidation for an antique look. His stampwork is extremely precise and he uses heavy-gauge silver. He uses fine turquoise, coral and lapis in his traditional designs. Recently, he has been creating more contemporary designs, with channel inlay, as well.
