Ben Nighthorse Rock Art Jewelry
Inspired by the petroglyphs of the Southwest, Ben Nighthorse’s Rock Art designs are modern classics. Rock Art is a term in archaeology for any man-made markings made on natural stone. Early Native Americans made Rock Art images as a method of communication. These images have many meanings: from their use for spiritual teaching to young tribal initiates, from lessons for the more mature on The Greater Journey of Life to a way of saying, “We were here!” which has echoed down through the ages. In Ben’s words, “This design for me represents roots and stability … a timelessness.”

For over 50 years, Northern Cheyenne artist Ben Nighthorse has created beautiful, award winning jewelry using the highest quality precious and semi-precious stones, including diamonds, turquoise and lapis set in 18 karat gold and the finest sterling silver.
