Darrell Jumbo, a.k.a. “Elephant Man,” was born on ancestral land on the Navajo Reservation in a remote area of the Chuska Mountains in eastern New Mexico and is best known for his silver pins and boundless depictions of animal characters. Darrell says, “My pieces don’t make fun of animals, but of our human nature as seen through them. I often use a variety of silversmithing techniques including: stampwork, fusion, overlay, inlay, reticulation, granulation, texturing, and more on a single piece to heighten its visual impact .’’
