Living in Yuma, Arizona in the early 1970’s, I met Native American Indians who created beautiful traditional jewelry. Their methods, materials and finished pieces were the “seed” that eventually grew into my avocation as a silversmith. I believe that it is important to support the traditional, cultural craft of these talented silversmiths and artisans. About twice a year I visit the Navajo and Zuni reservations and trading posts in McKinley County, New Mexico and purchase Native handcrafted pieces to sell along with my own creations. I am proud to offer them here.
