Jeff DeMent, Navajo Silversmith
Jeff DeMent started making tufa cast jewelry around 2014 after he had completed military service. He was injured in combat, and came back to the U.S. to heal. His work is exquisite, particularly considering the short amount of time since he began working with silver and stones.
