Vivi Magoo LTD | Danny’s EPIC ADVENTURE – Part Four | Danny Wade | April 13-15, 2021


Native American Indian Jewelry has served many functions through history.

It represents a culture, a trading commodity, a symbol of status and pride and was a beautiful adornment for Native American men and women alike.

Gold, silver and gemstones such as turquoise, coral and opal continue to be used by a variety of tribal silversmiths in the Navajo, Hopi and Zuni tribes.


Over your three days, Danny will guide you through all the steps necessary to create your very own work of art, made by you in the traditional Native American style. 

He’s an incredibly accomplished silversmith and lapidarist, and he will help guide you through the steps to create jewelry inspired by our beloved indigenous people of the Americas.
