Native American Jewelry

The Navajo are believed to be the first Native American silversmiths.  Working with Navajo elders in 1930, researcher John Adair was able to determine that Atsidi Sani (active 1860s to 1890s) was the first Navajo to work silver.  Another early silversmith, Atsis Chon (1870s to 1900s) was the first to set turquoise onto a silver piece.  The Hopi and Zuni tribes have crafted their own styles.  Much of what these Native Americans learned came from working with Mexican silversmiths.
