Nila Cook-Johnson has the ability to make just about any style of Native American jewelry. From bezel-set stones to inlay, from hand-fabricated silver to sand cast, Nila flows where the stones take her. With this bracelet, Nila followed the form of the silversmiths of old. Because the Blue Gem cabs had previously been cut in rectangular shapes, Nila decided to keep it simple.  She set the high-grade and natural stones in a simple bezel and mounted them atop a five-wire shank. “I couldn’t bring myself to detract from such amazing turquoise,” says Nila, “I wanted the deep blue stones to speak for themselves, so I created the bracelet in the classic style.”

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?
