Stamped and contoured to fit hair comb

Navajo silversmiths are renowned for their intricate, detailed stamp work, a style developed over many generations. Stamping is done by hand, and the stamps themselves are often times unique to the artist or are handed down from generations of silversmiths.

Campito is derived from the Spanish word "campo" meaning "field" or "countryside". Mined in Mexico from the Pino Chueco and Cananea mines in Sonora, Campitos is a favorite for jewelry artisans. Campitos is unique in several ways. It grows in clay as free-form nuggets, rather than in veins which is typical of many North American turquoises. Its color closely resembles that of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and ranges from a light to medium blue with no matrix. Occasionally you may find pyrite inclusions, which give it a little bit of sparkle.

Authentic Handmade Native American Jewelry

Randall Dalgai began producing his own work in 1982. Specializing in barrettes and combs, Dalgai also fashions rings, buckles, bolos and other handmade jewelry in the traditional styles passed down to him from his silversmith parents. Born April 28, 1970 in Fort Defiance, AZ, Delagai is of the Navajo Tribe and the Towering House (Ki’ ya’ anni) and Black Streak (Tsin’ na’ jinii’) Clans.
