Southwestern Silver Jewelry
Silver Jewelry has been made in the Soutwestern regions of the United States since 1865 when a Navajo named Atsidi Sani learned how to work Silver from the Spaniards who were in this areas seeking gold and silver. Atsidi Sani was responsable for bringing the Silver Jewelry industry to the Southwest and then it was escalated by the white man who worked with the Native Americans to make Silver Jewelry that was marketable to the tourists and the cities on the west coast, mainly southern California.
Today, the Silver Jewelry industry has grown substancially and there are many contemporary Silver Artisans, Native American Silver Artisans and Southwestern Jewelry production shops. Until recently there were a lot of individuals in this area making cheap Turquoise Jewelry for the fashion market, however, when Silver went up over $40.00 per ounce the cheap Jewelry industry fell to its knees. As a result Silversmiths in this area as well as the world are falling out of the trade like flies unless they make quality Silver Jewelry that sells in a price range that they can sustain themselves.
