Native American Jewelry : Navajo : Sterling Silver Horn Toad Pin : Lee Charley : NAJ-7pa
Born in 1968, Lee Charley learned his craft from his mother, Nellie. She would have orders come in for 200 or so bracelets as a piece worker. Charley would help by cutting the silver, buffing it, and whatever else she needed done.
After nine years or so, he set out on his own. Many of his early pieces carried his mother's influence. He slowly developed his own unique style. He is known for his whimsical designs of creatures of the earth, water, and sky. You can see in the delicate pins below, that he certainly has a talent for creating wearable works of art.
Lee lives in his birthplace of Thoreau, NM with his wife and three children.
