Vincent Platero, of the Cañoncito Band of Navajo, grew up on the To'Hajiilee reservation, located 30 miles west of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Having come from a long line of silversmiths, Vincent was taught the art by his mother, and to this day uses tools passed down through generations in his family. Platero has developed an identifiable style all his own, characterized by precise and intricate hand stamp work. Each piece is finished with an oxidized technique which adds depth to the design, and creates a vintage feel. Platero jewelry is some of the most collectible of all Navajo jewelry.
