Navajo silversmith Doris Yazzie purchases various knives, usually Buck or Schrade, that have wooden handles.
She then replaces portions of the wood with beautiful inlays of turquoise, lapis lazuli, coral, mother of pearl, acoma jet and sterling silver channels.
She adds her hallmark “DY” to one of the blades as well as “NAVAJO”.
What a good idea !!
