Calvary, then the Trading Posts and Indian Traders. It was around 1865 when Atsidi Sani began producing Silver buttons which were called conchos. The Native American Indians loved the shiny conchos and soon began embellishing their clothing and then Jewelry. It was not long and the Natives were putting Silver on their leather utensils, bags and so on. It was about 1880 when the Navajo Silversmiths began incorporating Turquoise into their Silversmithing.
When the Navajo Silversmiths started using Turquoise, a giant demand for their Jewelry began with the Native American Indians throughout the Southwest and quickly spread to other American Indian communities as well. The Traders to the Navajo also appreciated Turquoise Jewelry and brought it to the marketplace in California where it was quickly accepted and appreciated by the city people.
