He worked with leather tooling while in high school and found that working with silver was very similar.
Self-taught, his early work was in the traditional, Navajo style, but as he developed, this modern wire-work design became the one he is recognized for.
He says he always takes home a ribbon from Santa Fe Indian Market, the Southwestern Art Festival, and the Heard Museum Show; no small feat.
Sleek and modern, this pendant is perfect for you who favor small-scale jewelry.
The sophisticated contrast of matte black and gleaming silver has been admired since the glamorous art deco period of the 1920s and ’30s.
As a traditional Navajo who participates in ceremonies, he has added a little dome of natural silver.
This is not only a spiritual addition, but it also sparks up the black and silver color palette.
Modest in size and price, this pendant is very large in design, workmanship, and impact.
