Tribal Affiliation: Navajo

Jack is self-taught silversmith, started in 1974. Born to Ashiini (Salt) Clan and for the To dich ii nii (Bitterwater) Clan. Jack Began his career by working for a jewelry shop in Holbrook, Arizona, starting as the boom period was about to begin. Working as a buffer, he found it unpleasant and dirty job, but it did provide Jack with the opportunity to observe silversmithing and ultimately to teach himself the craft. In 1985 he began with traditional work, set with Turquoise, Coral, and Opals. In 1994 further enhancing their work with the use of 14k gold. Jack and wife Mary, who is also a skilled silversmith, create work together and seperately. Their metalworking techniques have expanded to include textured rolling (which Jack learned from Zuni jeweler Marvin Panteah) and sandblasting, which provides an alternative to the normal mirror-finish polish most silversmiths give to the back of their work. The changes are part of the process that allows their work to continue to evolve and enchant.
