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.
Growing up on the Navajo reservation, Mary Ann learned to take traditional designs and integrate them with new and more modern styles. Her work is always unique and recognizable, and each piece is hand-stamped on the back with her hallmark "M. Spencer".
