Jerry T Nelson


Without invading anybody’s privacy, could anyone give me some more information about Jerry T.Nelson? I love his work so much and have no idea what generation he comes (or came) from. All I know is he is or was Navajo and works in silver, carnelian, mother of pearl, etc. So original, yet faithful to tradition at the same time.



Yes, he has a great style. I haven’t seen anything with his hallmark in sometime. I looked him up in Hougart’s hallmark book and it has him starting jewelry making in 1959. They showed three hallmarks he used and the date.
