American Hand Made in the Southwest

American Hand Made

 American Hand Made Silver Jewelry from the Southwest is unusual and substantially different from manufactured Jewelry made elsewhere in the USA or the world. It has been customary since Atsidi Sani, a Navajo Blacksmith, learned how to make Silver Jewelry from the Spaniards in 1865 to make American hand made Jewelry one piece at a time.

Today, individuals and collectors still come to the Southwest to seek out Native American Hand Made Silver Jewelry and Turquoise Jewelry. The massive increase in the cost of Silver has slowed down the production of cheap Silver Indian Jewelry, however, the quality of Silver Jewelry in the Southwest is getting better and better. Also, the gemstones used in the high quality Silver Jewelry today have also risen sharply in cost, especially Turquoise, so between Silver and Turquoise becoming more expensive the Jewelers are making higher quality Jewelry.
