Ernest was born in Kayenta, Chilchinbeto, Arizona. He currently lives in Breadsprings, New Mexico with his wife Readda, and their twins Ernest Jr. and Faith. Back in 1975 he took silversmithing classes at Monument Valley High School. He used to watch his brother in law and his father making jewelry, and they used to give him scrap silver to work with. His jewelry making career took off when he brought some distinguished pieces to the Navajo Nation Fair and the Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial. He was awarded with multiple ribbons there and decided to pursue jewelry making full time. Today, he is one of the most respected Navajo silversmiths. His custom deep stamping work is different from all others.
We choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted).
We also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment.
