Navajo Calvin Desson is a multi facet mostly self-taught Artisan in the truest sense. His very early days consisted of drawings inspired by his surroundings, life, culture and beliefs which we often call 'storytelling'. Daily life struggles took Mr. Desson down various roads to provide for his family. Although these times were likely very challenging, what emerged was an extraordinary talent now gifted to the world through his Jewelry Art. His contemporary works from Starry Nights to Abstract interpretation consists of intricate stone inlay encapsulated in Sterling Silver often depicting portions of the original drawings from his youth. Leaves one to also ponder if watching his father create Sand Paintings as a child led to this picture art in stone? Mr. Desson is Artisan, Lapidary, Silversmith and StoryTeller.
