Native American Artist: Jesse Robbins
Jesse Robbins was born and raised in Prescott, Arizona. He learned how to manipulate silver and cut his own stones from his Prescott mentors Randy “Bubba” Shackleford and Jock Favour. Under Bubba’s Tutelage, Robbins learned the traditional method of tufa cast hand wrought jewelry. Starting with scrap sterling, or coin silver, Robbins melts and casts a tufa ingot. From this ingot, he pulls inspiration from his travels as an archaeologist throughout the American Southwest to create wearable works of art. Robbins’ determination to honor the past while exploring his artistic vision has led him to become one of the top young traditional silversmiths working today.
