Product Description

Silver hand-fabricated and hand-stamped with gorgeous natural Chinese turquoise stone in buckle, circa 1990’s, by Navajo artist Leo Yazzie.

Navajo Artist, Leo Yazzie was born and raised at Black Mesa, Arizona and currently resides in Flagstaff, AZ with his wife, Carolyn. He got interested in jewelry-making while taking an elective class in metal-smithing when he was pursuing studies in sociology at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. He has been designing and making fine jewelry on a full time basis for about 26 years.

His exposure to Navajo traditional culture and teachings in his home influenced his work designs. He credits his late grandmother and late mother’s storm pattern rug weaving designs along with his religious influences for his creativity.

His work features unique designs in silver and gold with stone settings in turquoise, red and pink coral, sugalite, lapis, opal, and various other quality gemstones. Much of his work has inlay to highlight the stones and designs used.
