I strive to follow the perfected stamping technique of the Navajo craftsmen. To stamp silverwork, I must create each impression on a sheet of silver with a single hammer blow. Most creations require several stamps to complete, and a single error means that the I must start over again. I carefully chose each stamp and design on my jewelry, striving to leave a clear, visible imprint unique to each piece. Each of my designs reflect my Native American heritage and culture. The stamps I use are based on traditional symbols and motifs from my culture. I use them to create a unique pattern that captures the essence of my culture and reflects my own personal identity. I’m proud to be able to bring these symbols to life through my jewelry. My work is a tribute to my ancestors and a reminder of the importance of preserving my culture. I was blessed this talent by Clarence Sousea, a well known Navajo Silversmith and member of my mother’s family.
