NAVEEK… uses his professional name NAVEEK to honor both his Navajo and Greek heritage. Named Artist of the Year, 1993, by the Indian Arts and Crafts Association, is an extraordinary master jeweler by any standard.
NAVEEK was born at Fort Defiance, Arizona, and raised in the area south of Standing Rock on the Navajo Reservation and in the community of Gallup, New Mexico. His grandfather, Tom A. Lewis, a Navajo medicine man and traditional silversmith, greatly influenced his grandson’s interest in art and taught NAVEEK his essential skills. While this exposure to his Navajo culture has certainly been a major influence, NAVEEK also credits his Greek ancestry from the Island of Crete for much of his creativity. His complex channel inlay style has evolved over 35 years into award winning designs sought by collectors and featured in galleries throughout the country.
