Carlton Jamon


Keshi! Hello, I am Carlton Jamon and I am best known for the silver bear fetish wearable art, an innovative hollow form that I developed by adapting the Zuni stone fetish and fabricating it in sterling silver. The silver heartline bears can take the form of pins, pendants and stand-ins for stone fetishes on all silver fetish necklaces and silver fetish pots. At the age of 14, I learned to work with silver from my Grandmother Winnie Jamon. Now I am an Artist/ Metalsmith working in sterling silver,18k and 14k gold as well as titanium, niobium and stainless steel. Throughout my career as an Artist/ Metalsmith, I have won numerous awards and honors. Today I create and sell my creations out of my studio in Zuni, New Mexico. In honor of the Silver Hollow Bears that I create, I named my studio SILVERBEAR STUDIO.
