Calvin Begay is an award winning Navajo artist, jeweler, designer and master craftsman. As his fame has spread, he has moved into an atelier system. He designs an item and turns the execution over to his apprentices and colleagues, under his supervision. (For those unfamiliar with it, the atelier system is what allows great artists like Calvin to turn out more work than their individual hands could ever accomplish.) This ring was designed by Calvin but made by one of his apprentices.
