Southwestern Handmade Silver Jewelry


Southwestern Handmade Silver Jewelryis unique and unusual as this region has traditionally been known for a beautiful style “Southwestern” that is not generally made anywhere else in the world. Silversmithing began in the Southwest around 1865 when a Navajo Indian named Atsidi Sani learned the trade from the Spaniards who were in the Southwest seeking Silver and Gold. Native American Handmade Silver Jewelry was an immediate hit and became popular with the Native Americans and soon became admired throughout the world. Today, there are many fine artisans that create handmade Silver Jewelry in the Southwest, Durango Silver Company handles many and we also produce some of the best quality Silver Jewelry ourselves.
