Kathy Yazzie is from the Navajo reservation near Gallup, New Mexico and she learned to make silver jewelry from her parents. She worked in Gallup at a number of trading posts before moving to Albuquerque to work with a silver manufacturing company designing and making her traditional styles. Traditional styles are her favorite type of jewelry to make. She usually starts with the stone and designs the jewelry around it to show the stone to its best advantage.
