About the artist

Darren Livingston

Navajo silversmith, Darren Livingston, lives in Church Rock, New Mexico, where he has lived most of his life and where his father and grandfather are from.  He lives there with his family of four girls and a granddaughter.

He learned his silversmith trade at the age of 13 years old. Darren attended a boarding school in the early years of his life and spent most of his time there because his parents were struggling alcoholism. He went to a public high school in which he really enjoyed. After graduation, he became serious about making silversmithing his life’s work.

Darren is the son of respected silver smith Paul Livingston.  Having learned his skills from his accomplished father, Darren works in very similar materials:  heavy gauged sterling, traditional turquoise and coral stones but reaches beyond to opals and other semi-precious stones as has his father.  Though Paul’s forte has always been more traditional even vintage looking Navajo style jewelry, his contemporary designs are also in high demand as is Darren’s.
