JSW99 Turquoise Dangle Earrings

Sterling silver and turquoise earrings by Navajo silversmith John Begay, Jr. Each of the 3/4” x 2” earrings have two triangular turquoise stones set in intricate silver designs.

John does not mass produce jewelry, as many of his counterparts do. He puts loving skill and spirit into each piece, making his masterpieces unique in more ways than ever.

About the Artist

John is a self-taught, quietly modest and unassuming man. He is a master smith and his real trademark is his painstaking design and exacting solder work. He does not sign his jewelry work and is satisfied in using only 550 Silver & Supply's Monster Slayer shop hallmark stamp - a mythical being from Navajo legend.

Being a silver smith is John's chosen profession, something he has had to work at. He has been working at it for over a quarter century and his jewelry reflects his experience and love for his art. Each piece is uniquely his. One does not need to see the Monster Slayer hallmark to recognize John's special style and excellent craftsmanship, his pieces speak for themselves.

Although he was raised a Christian, John has reclaimed much of his Navajo heritage. Now, as he does his work, he prays over it in the Navajo fashion. He says that he prays his work will go well. He also desires blessings on those who display his work and especially blessings on the purchaser of the jewelry, that they will be pleased and satisfied in wearing it.

John does not mass produce jewelry, as many of his counterparts do. He puts loving skill and spirit into each piece, making his masterpieces unique in more ways than ever.
