These are really impressive. Kee Joe Benally won many awards at Gallup, Santa Fe and elsewhere, worked as a bench smith for Tanner for a while, and started in the 1950's, I think he worked with Kenneth Begay for a while. He is very well known for his variety, especially jewelry that resembles leather work. He is listed on page 82 of G. Schaff's book on 1200 artists. These ear rings are 6" long and 1 " wide, so very large but light, really make a statement...

This is the nicest Dine' butterfly pin I have ever come across, that is why I bought it, I paid a fair amount for it too. It is made from cast sheets of silver ( probably coin, but not tested )and is of significant age, 1940 or earlier, probably about 1930. Large 2 3/4" by 1 3/4", and beautifully made, great stamping, nice patina and just enough wear to show its age. Unmarked. Turquoise is nice too, small crack on the edge of one stone, but solid...

I have seen a lot of " Fred Harvey " items from the 1940's to the 1960's advertised as " 1920's or 1930's " Not the case here. This is the real deal. A fine old piece that is definitely before 1930 and may even be from the teens! Everything is hand made, the eagle ( or possibly thunderbird )is hand hammered ( probably coin silver ) with extensive filing and hammer marks on the back, nice wear and patina and great old stamping. The bezels are smooth hand made and fairly tall...

This item was collected in the field in the 1970's by an Australian patrol officer. It shows considerable age, so it was well used before being collected. Note the insect damage on the front, still has some remains of pigment...

These are a super collector's item. Delmar Lamson only made jewelry for 4 years, he was trained at the Guild and started working in 1985. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1988, so his work is very hard to find. These wonderful butterfly earrings are made of sterling and signed with his hallmark and the guild mark, they also come with the original Hopi Arts and Crafts - Silvercraft Guild display card. about 3/4" diameter, clip on, excellent vintage condition. ...

Michael Bird-Romero is one of the best known as respected Native American jewelers working. He started in 1972 and has won many awards and is in many museum collections. His work is always beautifully finished, and never mass produced. He makes everything by hand -- even his own ingot silver. This beautiful pin is 1 5/16" wide at the rattle snake ( which is 14K gold cast ) and 4 1/2" long. The snake's expression is very sweet. Hallmarked by the artist. ...

These nice earrings are a Frank Patiana design, they have been converted from post to screw back in the distant past and it is very possible that the screw backs covered up the Patiana hallmark ( see images ). They were originally purchased in Arizona marked sterling on the screwbacks and with an "F" on the back of the ear rings. Nice turquoise. About 1 1/4" long nice vintage condition. ...

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. Hallmarked LL and his snake hallmark about 1 1/2" long by 3/4" wid...

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 bracelet is probably from the 1960's or so, it depi...

Fine old bracelet that dates to 1960 or earlier, possibly the 1930's.

The bracelet has really nice deep stamping and is about 1 1/8" wide by about 5 1/2" PLUS a 1 1/4" gap. Hand fabricated. Can be adjusted. Weighs about 30 grams, nice vintage condition. ...

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. About 2...

Morris Robinson was one of the earliest documented Hopi smiths, he began working in the 1920's and developed many new and innovative styles. This pin has a nice quality turquoise cab set in a silver bezel. The stamping on the pin is deep and very well done. About 2 3/8" by 1 ", hallmarked by the artist, circa 1930's ( before 1942 ), about 7 grams, and excellent vintage condition....
