~Calvin Begay~

He was born in Gallup, New Mexico in 1965, and grew up on the Navajo Reservation at Tohatchi. He began designing jewelry in 1975. His work reflects an extraordinary attention to detail, sensitivity to the most effective combination of stones and the highest standard of excellence. His designs and work have won many awards, including ‘Best of Show’ in the 1989 Gallup Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial. You can identify a piece by Calvin by looking at the precision of the inlay and the silver work. The beauty of his work has earned him featured treatment in Southwest Art Magazine and Arizona Highways Magazine. As a designer, as well as a hands-on maker of jewelry, Calvinoffer signs his work and often includes the signature of one or more of his studio colleagues who do some of the silversmith, inlay work and lapidary finishing in carrying out his designs. When you own a certified Calvin Begay work of Navajo jewelry art, whether it is a bracelet, earrings, necklace or pendant, you have an object that is both beautiful and authentic in its Native American heritage.
