Joe Chee is lesser known than his brother Marc, but he was just as prolific and worked with Mark Chee for several years. His work is undervalued IMHO. This ring is a size 7 1/2 and the face is about 5/8" by about 3/4". It is signed Joe Chee and is in excellent condition.

This is a rare item, I have only seen a few buckles made and signed by Kenneth Begay. This buckle is about 2 7/8" long by about 1 3/8" wide and is decorated in deep repossee with a cotton bole ( the flower of the cotton plant that then goes to seed and turns into cotton ). Mr. Begay used this design on other items as well. The buckle is hallmarked with the initials KB in a reserve, the White Hogan mark and sterling. Circa 1950's.

This is not your typical 1920's Fred Harvey piece. It is completely hand made and fabricated ( all the silver was cast by hand and formed into shape ) It looks like even the pin back was made by hand! This piece was made by one of the greats, Mark Chee, Fred Peshlakai, Morris Robinson, all made similar pieces. About 2 7/8" long by 13/16" wide. The Gem grade turquoise is Nevada mine, and most likely from Red Mountain, Indian Mountain, Pilot Mountain or similar...

If you browse my catalog, you will see that I do not stock a lot of unsigned work. This is mainly because I try to be very selective as to what I sell, if I don't like something, I don't stock it. However when a piece stands out, I can't resist, such is the case with this guy. The work is nicer and more detailed than most, the twisted wire antennae and legs as well as the well executed deep stamping, set it above the rest. I suspect this is pre-war dating to the 1930's given the quality...

Madeline Beyuka started making jewelry in 1954 and worked for many years with her husband Eddie, she continued working on her own after they divorced. This beautiful pin pendant is constructed from multiple colors of carved turquoise inlaid into silver. This piece most likely dates to about 20 to 30 years ago when she was in her prime. Now her children also make jewelry. 1 7/8" tall by 1 3/8" wide, excellent condition.

This beautiful necklace is a classic example of the jewelry made by Dan Simplicio. There are many who attribute almost anything with coral and leaves to him, I do not make attributions lightly. I have been working with Native American jewelry for about 25 years now, and I also seek the advise of others before I attribute a piece. The consensus is this is the work of the master himself. Unmarked silver with nice coral and what looks like Morenci mine turquoise...

This wonderful old pin is made of turquoise, spiny oyster shell, white shell, and jet in a silver cast base decorated with coiled silver wire and other applied silver pieces. There is a hairline crack in one turquoise piece on the chest, and a small chip in the spiny oyster in the hat which is most likely original to the piece. The tiered head dress and the low placed elongated eyes are characteristics of the work of David Tsikewa. 2 3/4" tall by 1 1/4" wide at arms, about 16 grams.

Beautiful old pin made of silver and spiny oyster shell made by Ivan Kee the brother of Allen and George Kee who all worked at the White Hogan shop. Ivan began working in the 1940's and continued until his death in 1982. I believe this pin to be early work judging by the style and the fact that he used shell instead of turquoise ( turquoise was almost impossible to get between 1941 and 1946 ). Marked I. Kee and .925 on the back along with another hallmark he used ealry in his career...
