Perry Shorty - Navajo  

Perry Shorty's work strongly reflects classic Navajo silver jewelry created from the last quarter of the 1800's through the 1930's. While Perry's jewelry is clearly identifiable in its elegant simplicity, his jewelry making techniques are actually quite complex. He is well known for creating coin silver jewelry, an old technique in which silver coins are meticulously melted down to be formed into silver jewelry pieces. Perry also hand-extrudes silver wire and uses files, chisels and appliqué of silver balls to create intricate deigns on the silver's surface. He is a master of very precise stampwork as well, for Perry has created most of his own stamps. Add to all of Perry's skill the fact that he uses only the finest natural turquoise, and what you've got are true works of art like Perry Shorty's coin sliver cuff bracelet.
