Leroy creates his jewelry by a technique called fabrication. He uses sterling silver and 14k gold in sheet and wire form, and hammers, cuts, and solders it into shape. From Leroy’s extensive travels throughout the southwest, he finds inspiration for his jewelry designs. Bridges, architecture, boulders, even automobiles fuel his imagination. He is also greatly inspired by his rich Navajo heritage. Leroy has been making jewelry for over 30 years. All the stones that Leroy uses for inlay as well as cabochons are natural.
