He credits Preston Monongye and Jessie Monongye for his success as a fine jewelry artist. His designs are reflective of the bright stars of the New Mexico nights and the geometric forms of the landscape. They all play a part in his finely detailed inlay jewelry. With sleek and contemporary shapes and designs, he manages to balance the flavor of tradition with his stylized approach to Indian imagery. It is believed that Preston, Jesse, and Jim were among the first jewelers to work extensively with inlay of multicolored stones and shells with silver. His designs continue to change and they include Hopi and Navajo Sunfaces, and the Yei- bei-chei. He experiments with landscapes and galaxies. The work of Jim Harrison is very distinctive and easily recognizable.
“The key to being a good artist is you have to create something that no one else has done before and that separates you from the others,” he said. That is certainly true of all of Jim's work.
