by Vincent Platero Sr., Navajo Nation
hand stamped sterling silver

Currently a resident of Tohajiilee, New Mexico, Vincent Platero Sr. (b. 1957) grew up as part of the Navajo Edgewater and Black Streak Clans and learned his craft from his mother, Helen Chavez. Vincent has a distinctive style that is recognized and respected in collector’s circles and by fellow silversmith's.

Featured in galleries around the country, Vincent has also won awards at the New Mexico State Fair and the Denver Indian Market. His silverwork has been noted since the 1970’s, and he designs and creates a full range of jewelry. His sampler concho belts, many with traditional rug patterns, his dragonfly & butterfly pins, and of course his deep, strong hand stamp work are what we associate most with Vincent’s striking and unique style.
