Native American jewelry has been around for thousands of years but it wasn't until the Spanish came up into New Mexico that American Indians saw metals like iron and silver. They also had never seen horses, goats or sheep until then. The style of American Indian jewelry changed forever in 1850 when a Mexican silversmith taught a Navajo named Atsidi Sani how to make silver jewelry and from him it spread to the other Southwest Indian tribes.
