We were shocked and saddened to hear of Darryl's untimely death in late March of this year. One of our suppliers of Darryl's jewelry just opened back up after having been closed since late March and we purchased as much of Darryl's jewelry as we could. Darryl Becenti was born in 1957 in Gallup. New Mexico. He was taught silver work by his brothers-in-law, David & Leroy Reeves in 1980 and he is the brother-in-law to the famous Sunshine Reeves, Gary Reeves, David Reeves, Andy Cadman, and Darrell Cadman Clan. Darrell made his own stamps and dyes, and heavily used magnificent stars, fans, scallops, shells, and elaborate appliques in all of his jewelry. His jewelry is highly prized for it's deep hand-stamped Navajo designs, repousse silver work, and thick gauge silver.
