Navajo Jewelry

American Hand Made Navajo Silver JewelryNavajo Jewelry began around 1865 when a Navajo Blacksmith named Atsidi Sani learned how to work with Silver from the Spaniards that came to the Southwest in search of Silver and Gold. Atsidi Sani was the first Southwestern Native American to create Navajo Jewelry. It was just a short period of time until Atsidi Sani incorporated Turquoise into his Silver Jewelry and thus began a long new trail for the Navajo Indians.

We have created a great informational page on Navajo Jewelry and invite you to read more about this wonderful American heritage. The great American Western Frontier is a special chapter in world history and the history of the Navajo Indians of the Southwest plays an intricate roll in this special time in our American heritage.

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.
