Sunshine Reeves" older brothers, Gary Reeves and David Reeves, taught him the craft of silver-smithing. Sunshine, along with his half-brothers, Darrel and Andy Cadman, all apprenticed together and they show a great deal of similarity in their intricate stamp work and their use of high quality stones. While each artist has his own individual style, they all share an affinity for complex engraved and hand stamped geometric designs and they are all a part of recreating and popularizing the old Navajo designs of the early 20th century. They call their style Navajo Revival Style.
Sunshine is now a world-renowned artist, taking numerous "Best of Show" awards and 1st place ribbons at various shows and Indian Markets. His jewelry is shown at the Peabody Museum, the Heard Museum, and many other museums.
