At a young age, I remember seeing my nalí when she would visit us from the Navajo Reservation. She always brought the jewelry that she made with her. She would go around town trying to sell to whoever would buy. It instilled a love for jewelry in me at a young age. I started with beaded friendship bracelets, then knotted bracelets made of thread, and would later graduate to silversmithing. I've now been practicing my craft for over a decade, trying to hone in on a personal style while paying an homage to my Diné heritage. I've found a solace in this craft with long days and nights to get me here. I take pride in the work and craftsmanship that goes into each piece of jewelry that I make. I hope that the love and dedication reflects to whomever owns a piece of Taveen. A true representation of my soul and spirit.
