About Ron Henry, Navajo Silversmith

Ron Henry grew up in Coyote Canyon, New Mexico on the Navajo Reservation. He attended school through the 8th grade at Tohatchi School. His mother, Louise, was a talented Navajo weaver and silversmith. His older brother, Ernie, taught Ron to design and make traditional style jewelry. In 1975, the Henry family moved to Rochester, Minnesota to both make and market their jewelry. They opened a store, Chi-Nah-Bah, where Ron developed his skill as a silversmith.

Ron's style is contemporary and unique. Each piece is completely handmade. He uses sterling silver and 14k. The natural stones his uses are not fabricated. Ron pays great attention to detail. His work is impeccable. 

Ron creates each piece by hand. He does no casting. The piece will take between two to three weeks to be completed. There are times the piece will be completed before that timeframe. If you have a time deadline, please let us know. Ron will work with you. His work is quality, immaculate and exquisitely detailed. Ron designs and crafts unique and exquisitely handmade jewelry from silver and semi-precious stones. Select from our southwestern jewelry gallery or design your own.
