Artisan Information - Thunderbird Jewelry Co.

Quality handicrafts are only as good as the hands that make them. At Thunderbird Jewelry, our products are crafted by some of the most highly skilled hands in the business. Although the success of our business relies upon our customers’ continued patronage, without our artisans we would have nothing to sell, and we are forever indebted to their vision, dedication, and talents.

Meet our Artisans:
Harry Spencer hails from Mentmore, New Mexico. Harry has been working as a silversmith for more than 30 years, having originally learned the art form from his grandfather. Harry has been part of the Thunderbird Jewelry team for almost his entire career, having been with the company for better than 20 years. His skill in manipulating raw silver into stunning pieces of jewelry is unmatched.

Ella Cowboy, also of Mentmore, learned from her relatives how to make jewelry. Today, she inlays jewelry as part of the Thunderbird Jewelry team, a role she has played for more than 15 years. Ella’s talent and artistic eye help to create some of the most stunning Native American Indian and tribal jewelry for sale anywhere.
