Thomas Curtis, Sr.

Like another celebrated jeweler, the late Gibson Nez, Thomas Curtis Sr began his career in rodeo. He was a champion bareback rider. He has become a champion in silversmithing, his current occupation, as well. Thomas Curtis is widely admired by his peers, and eagerly collected by everyone, for his exquisite, award-winning stamp work and traditional designs. He has passed on his talent for fine stamp work to his award-winning daughter, Jennifer Curtis, and great-nephew, Rydell Curtis.
Sadly, Mr. Curtis has passed away, after suffering a debilitating illness during which he created little or no new jewelry.
