Marvin Slim: A Legacy of Navajo Silversmithing

Marvin Slim, a distinguished Navajo silversmith, hails from the quaint town of Torreon, New Mexico. Raised in the vibrant city of Albuquerque, Marvin was introduced to the art of silversmithing at a tender age, learning the craft from his mother and relatives who passed down their skills through generations.

Today, Marvin, along with his wife Luana, a native of San Felipe Pueblo, and their children, continue to reside in Albuquerque. Together, Marvin and Luana have combined their talents to create an array of exquisite jewelry. Their repertoire includes bolo ties, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and adjustable rings, each piece reflecting their unique craftsmanship.

Marvin's signature on his work, "Sterling, M S", stands as a testament to his dedication and passion for silversmithing, carrying forward the rich legacy of Navajo craftsmanship.
