Robert Taylor is a silver- and gold-smith from Winslow, Arizona. He is known for his detail work with a tiny coping saw using itty-bitty blades. With such a saw, Robert, free cuts imagery from silver and gold sheets and solders them to a back plate of the same or contrasting precious metal. Robert will also use his steady hand to add stamped detail which adds even more dimension to his art. With this pendant, Robert has placed a buffalo in the heart of Monument Valley. In Navajo culture, the buffalo is a metaphor for the plains tribes and the valley is the center of the Navajo universe. Robert says, “I made this pendent to let everyone know that Monument Valley is open to the world. Our home is their home.” A nice sentiment from an excellent metalsmith and a gracious host.

"Cluster, channel, leaf, inlay, casting... I've done about everything," Robert Taylor talks about his silver and goldsmithing, "There's a lot of artists that do it." And then he confides the reason he has set himself apart from other craftsmen. "I didn't really get anywhere until I decided to design my own style."

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?
