The Beauty of Native American Indian Jewelry

Artist Spotlight: Alvin Yellowhorse

“As a young boy, I remember helping my father set up a table of jewelry along the roadside of old Route 66 located near the Arizona and New Mexico borders in Lupton, Arizona.   It was in these earlier days of my life that I was inspired by my father to undertake the art of silversmithing.   It’s through these experiences that these creations are made possible.”   

Alvin learned the silversmithing trade at an early age from his father, Frank Yellowhorse, and later mastered the techniques of cutting the small turquoise & other colorful stones into precise little pieces in which he assembles into intricate designs inspired by his ancestors.

His contemporary designs have Zuni, Hopi and traditional Navajo influences. He creates one piece of jewelry at a time, focusing on the details. Alvin also receives inspiration from the ancient petroglyphs found along the canyon walls near his workshop.
