Willie Yazzie started making silver overlay jewelry in the 1950's when the more well known Hopi smiths were doing the same. He worked from then until the 1990's. He was a teacher and silver smith at Mesa Verde National Park from 1960 to 1983. His wife also did similar silver work as does his son. In my humble opinion, he and his family have not been properly recognized for their early and important contribution to overlay technique...

Navajos began to learn silversmith techniques in the 1870's from New Mexican Hispanics and Plains Indians. Prior to 1920, the Navajo jeweler melted down coins as a source of silver. He also worked with copper and brass ( usually reclaimed from old cooking kettles ) when silver was unavailable or too expensive.
