Coral was introduced to Native peoples of the American southwest in the 1400's by Spanish explorers.  Its instant and enduring popularity is attributed to the vibrant range of color; from red to orange, pink and black. Due to its rarity and association with birth and existence, blood red is by far the most popular color.  Verde Jake crafts jewelry reminiscent of that created in the early part of the twentieth century.  Using basic tools passed down by her grandfather, Verde skillfully recreates heirloom quality wearable art from sterling silver and precious stones.


About the artist:

The jewelry created by Navajo silversmith Verdy Jake reflects Southwest jewelry classicism at its best.  Showcasing high quality turquoise and coral with substantial silver work, she intuits a perfect balance between precious metal and precious stone.

Silversmith Work

When and how the Navajo acquired the art of working metals is unknown but there are reasons for supposing that it was introduced among them, or at least more developed and improved upon by them, since the time they have occupied their present country?
