Recently, a gentleman brought in a busted bracelet. The cuff was wide, heavy, and studded with small but superb nuggets of natural Kingman turquoise. Because of the mangled silver work, the bracelet was unredeemable. The turquoise was, however, a true treasure. We carefully pulled the stones and gave them to Ben Yazzie. The idea was to make a bracelet that would suit the turquoise---an old cluster-style, heavy-duty bracelet was the goal. Ben was just the one to make it happen, and the result is this outstanding bracelet that is equal to the turquoise. Amazing!

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?
