Art Tafoya, Yaqui, makes all of his own stamps in creating his beautiful jewelry. He studied under the renowned Navajo silversmith, Fred Peshlakai and is greatly influenced by his precise heavy stamping work in sliver. Incredible precise stamp work takes time and skill  – Art does it right.

This very detailed stamped butterfly has a gorgeous natural sky-blue turquoise cabochon in the middle, which accents the sterling silver bumps and swirls of the wings. This is a large ring as the wings of the butterfly lay across three fingers. Definitely a show piece!
