Jimmy Secatero

A jeweler from the Navajo enclave of Canoncito, near Albuquerque, now reverted to its Navajo name of Toha’ji’lii. Jimmy is one of a large family of reputable silversmiths, which includes his father, Jimmy Sr., and relative Tom Willeto.
He is best known for well-made, traditional styles, but has recently branched out to more contemporary designs with the same reliable fabrication. Jimmy’s day job is for a wholesale concern, but he still produces individual pieces on his own.
