He has won numerous awards for his work, and was even featured with his brother in an article on turquoise in the August 1999 edition of Smithsonian Magazine.

“As a young boy, I remember helping my father set up a table of jewelry along the roadside of old Route 66 located near the Arizona and New Mexico borders in Lupton, Arizona.

With stunning sand stone cliffs and a covered wagon in the background of two Navajos along the roadside, motorists couldn’t pass without satisfying their curiosity. The result was a lot of picture taking and great conversation.

It was in these earlier days of my life that I was inspired by my father to undertake the art of silversmithing.

Today my designs are inspired by drawings found on nearby cliffs, which were left by my ancestors, ‘the Anasazi’. There, designs are transformed through much thought into pieces of contemporary inlaid jewelry. These designs are created with the use of sterling silver and or 14K gold, along with carefully selected stones from around the world.

It’s through these experiences that these creations are made possible, and I wish you many years of enjoyment.”
