The the energy, skill, and precision needed to create a successful piece of jewelry is substantial. Harry Morgan was a master of this and is primarily responsible for the "Classic Revival Style" in Navajo silver work. Tommy Jackson was a friend of Harry Morgan and told me how he achieved the "Old Pawn" finish that he made famous. He has many imitators and followers...But he remains the "Best" of them! There was some additional notoriety involved for him when his work was featured in the Robert Redford movie "The Horse Whisperers". He has won many awards since and his work is always met with great enthusiasm by discriminating collectors. His work is in the collection of The Peabody Museum at Harvard University and also in many private collections. He is referenced in the major Native American Jewelry books including "American Indian Jewelry I" by Gregory Schaaf p. I will pack this carefully for you. I thank You and look forward to sharing a good experience! Recommended Reference Books - This artist is referenced if there is a page # shown below.
