Jim and Helen Long have been somewhat eclipsed by more recent jewelry artists, however, they were very well known and still command much respect for their fine work. This necklace is a beautiful example of Mr. Long's artistry. It is composed of 14 blossoms each with a nice turquoise stone and hand stamped, and a crested naja set with 6 turquoise. The piece is completed with a double strand of handmade silver beads...

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...

This large and strong mask is from the Keram river. The Keram flows south into the Lower Sepik River. Most likely a canoe mask given the surface and the fact that it has only two piercings at the top and bottom for attachment. 19 3/4" tall, has good age dating from the early 20th century, and a wonderful powerful expression, note the faint remains of pigment that can be seen in the images.

Collected by Thomas Schultz-Westrum in 1966, this huge bowl dates from the early 20th century or before. Fine spirit face carved on one end. 32 1/4" long with an aged black patina. Schultz-Westrum's collecting is very well detailed in the book " Collecting New Guinea Art: Douglas Newton, Harry Beran, Thomas Schultz-Westrum" by Michael Hamson. Most of the Westrum collection was purchased by John Friede in the 1980's.

These officer's bladed sword sticks were used from pre-revolutionary war through the war of 1812 as a means of back up defense when one ought to have been unarmed. This blade type was introduced in 1796 replacing the earlier 1786 pattern. It was similar to its predecessor in having a spadroon style form ( three hollow surfaces coming to a slender point ). Excellent antique condition with some black rust and a fine patina overall. 35 1/2" long overall, blade is 27" long...

A very fine pair of vintage silver and high grade number 8 mine turquoise by Lewis Lomay. He started working about 1930 while studying with Ambrose Roanhorse at the Sante Fe Indian School. Later he worked for many years at Frank Patania Sr's shop. Beautifully done work as is typical of this artist, posts have been added to the original clip on backs, clips remain and they could very easily be converted back to just clip on...

Wilson Begay is ( in my humble opinion ) one of the best and least recognized Navajo artists around. His work is high quality in a traditional style and holds up well compared the Harry Morgan, Harry Begay and even Perry Shorty. He does mostly cast work with stamped designs. If I were a collector, I would be buying his work for the future, I think it is under priced compared to others. OK, off my soap box now...

While not well known Chee Keams ( 1922-2006 ) had a long career making jewelry. He taught Phil Loretto and others the craft.

This beautiful necklace consists of a series of graduated flattened silver beads -- the largest set with coral. The larges bead is about 1 1/2" by 1/1/4" the smallest is about 1" by 5/8". 26" long, 67 grams...
