American Indian Silver JewelryAmerican Indian Silver Jewelry Information

We have just completed a great new page on Indian Silver Jewelry. This is a presentation page that shows you photos and gives you descriptive text regrading American Indian Silver Jewelry.

Native American Indian Silver Jewelry is fairly recent on world standards having been started by a Navajo Indian named Atsidi Sani around 1865. Atsidi Sani was a Navajo Blacksmith who learned how to work with Silver from the Spaniards who were in the area in search for Silver and Gold. Atsidi Sani learned the trade and then shared his knowledge with other Navajos shortly after. Indian Silver Jewelry quickly became popular amoung the Navajo people and then Indian Silver Jewelry became great trade items with other American Indian tribes and soon after to the white men.

We invite you to come and take a look at our educational presentation on Indian Silver Jewelry now!
