Signature of artist Corbet Joe, Diné Silversmith

Diné of the Navajo Nation artist Corbet Joe work focusus on creating turquoise and red coral chip inlay silver jewelry. Chip inlay work is an exponentially tedious process that involves placing very small pieces of crushed gemstones into channeled inlays, piece by piece, and finishing it with epoxy resin. It requires incredible amounts of patience and willpower and can result in absolutely stunning finished pieces of jewelry. Corbet Joe signs his work, C J, with the letters typically offset.
