He first began jewelry work in 1974, making traditional nugget necklaces that he would trade for blankets and other goods on the Navajo reservation. “It was like a hobby at first,” he explains. Several years later he decided to focus on it as a career and has not looked back since. He has mastered lapidary work, bead and heishi production, and silver and goldsmithing along the way. He is considered the Best at making heishi beads. He was recently awarded 1st place for his lapidary work by IACA.

His work can be found in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in DC and in New York, the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe, amount other venues.

Freeze dried food is a Native Invention. The Inca of Peru used to preserve potatoes using a freeze-dry process. They would put them on mountain terraces, and the solar radiation and extremely cold temperatures created a freeze-dried product that lasted indefinitely.
