Bubba Shackleford – Jeweler

Working from the long history of the Native American silversmiths of the desert Southwest, Bubba combines a reverence for traditional tools and techniques with an eye for contemporary designs and materials. His work ranges from delicate charms, earrings, and bracelets for women to powerful bracelets and pendants for men, from hand-wrought and stamped silver ingots to original casts of cuttlebone and tufa. Bubba’s silver jewelry often incorporates exquisite stones, including turquoise from the finest domestic mines and such rarities as fossilized palm wood and dinosaur bone.
