Tim Yazzie stops by the Medicine Man Gallery studio to discuss his upbringing in New Mexico and the journey that led him to Tucson, Arizona where he lives today. Tim indulges us in the hardships of being a Native American silversmith (half Santo Domingo, a quarter San Felipe, and a quarter Navajo) in the 21st century and tells the story of his first job working with silver and turquoise inlay. From the Army to the Pueblo, this episode covers a lot of ground. For collectors and creators of jewelry alike, this is an episode of The Art Dealer Diaries you can't afford to miss.
