I have concluded, that this is an early piece of her work, due to the simplicity and naivety of the design. Mary Ann Spencer is a master Navajo silversmith. Hailing from Gallup, New Mexico, she began making jewelry at just 13 years old. Mary Ann had the fortune of being surrounded by many great artists while she was growing up - which inspired her to take a class in school.Reservation, Mary Ann learned to take traditional designs and integrate them with new and more modern styles. Always unique and recognizable, and each piece is hand-stamped on the back with her mark M.
