Travis is the son of famous Navajo silversmiths, Everett & Mary Teller and he has learned from his parents and become an accomplished silversmith in his own right. Travis is constantly pushing the boundaries of Native American jewelry and his work is very distinctive and easily recognizable. He lives on the Navajo reservation in Lukachukia, Arizona.
