Tom Jackson (1958-) hallmark signatureTommy Jackson comes from a family of jewelers. He learned jewelry making from his parents, Martha and Gene Jackson. He is a graduate of the University of Arizona, with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. In addition to making beautiful jewelry, Jackson is a teacher at Wide Ruins Community School. He has been making amazing jewelry since the 1970s.

Tom Jackson has cut, stamped and oxidized heavy gauge silver to form a fine rendition of a Sun Face. The outer layer consists of silver sun rays that surround a circle of oxidized silver. Centered inside the rays is the Sun Face, for which he used a combination of textured silver and polished silver to create a face.  It is signed T Jackson on the back.


Condition: The Round Silver Sun Face Buckle is in excellent condition. It shows very little wear.

Provenance: From the estate of a former client who amassed a collection of 40 Native-made belt buckles.  We have posted 35 of them on our site and the remaining ones from the collection will be added as we receive them.
