ALVIN YEL­LOWHORSE (NAVAJO)

Native American Art - - GUIDE TO MARKET -

Stones, stones, stones…it’s all about the place­ment of mag­nif­i­cent ma­te­ri­als in Alvin Yel­lowhorse’s jew­elry creations. Lapis, turquoise, sug­ilite, iron­wood, coral and many other rare stones can be found in a sin­gle piece, which ra­di­ates with his cre­ative touch. “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.” Yel­lowhorse’s works for In­dian Mar­ket this year in­clude stun­ning bracelets, pen­dants and bolo ties.
