Thomas Curtis, an award winning Navajo Silversmith, passed away on July 10, 2013. Thomas was considered among the top Navajo silversmiths, a master silversmith who professionally pursued his art for over 50 years. Thomas received many accolades, among them Best in Class at the 1987 Santa Fe Indian Market and he was featured in the May 2003 issue of Arizona Highways. Thomas Curtis was the bench silversmith for Rocking Horse Ranch in Flagstaff in 1985. He now uses his own hallmark which is T Curtis stamped in script. Thomas makes everything by hand including his die sets. The hardened steel Die Sets are used to stamp the silver jewelry. Thomas also uses chisels to flawlessly carve silver. Thomas Curtis's professional career began in the early 1950's. He fondly remembered as a child helping his grandfather make silver jewelry. Thomas Curtis' silver designs span the vintage years of the 1890's through the contemporary era that started in the 1940's with Kenneth Begay (who Thomas knew). We still have a fine collection of his jewelry offered for sale. Less
