Derrick Gordon has reached into his toolbox of silversmithing procedures to create this distinctive sterling silver ring. An oval plate of silver receives stamp work on the front, and then he surrounds those elements of repousse work. The piece is turned over and Derrick “bumps out” small ovals so that part of the design rises above the surface of the stamped silver. He then lightly burnishes the piece to give it a soft and pleasing finish.


About the artist:

At the age of nineteen, Derrick Gordon sat down at the bench with his uncle, Delbert Gordon, and a promising new career was launched.  Derrick was born and raised in Gallup, New Mexico.  He came into this world in 1971, but it was not until 1990 that he began to bless us with his unique style of Navajo silver jewelry.

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?
