John Begay, Jr., comes from a long line of silversmiths and has been lucky enough to work with others that helped him create a style all his own. “Square wire,” says John, “square wire of all sizes! You take it and you twist it, file and hammer it, then shape and fashion it into something appealing.” That sounds quite simple. When you gaze upon John's work, and look at it closely, you realize his technique is not simple at all. John has come up with a look that appears to be a cross between historic Turkish, Moorish, and Navajo silver work. John’s distinctive jewelry is highly refined, for his style of hand-fabrication is easily defined as “one of a kind.”


About the artist:

John Begay, Jr. John Begay Jr. - Navajo Silversmith:
A quietly modest and unassuming man, John Begay Jr. does not personally sign his work. Instead he uses the Monsterslayer hallmark - a mythical being from Navajo legend- as his signature. Being a silver smith is John's chosen profession, something he has had to work at. He has been working at it for a quarter century and his jewelry reflect his experience and his love for his art. Each piece is uniquely his. One does not need to see the Monster Slayer hallmark to recognize John's unique style and excellent craftsmanship, his pieces speak for themselves.

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?
