Freddy Charley

Born and raised in Shiprock, New Mexico. I grew up among ten siblings, 3 older sisters, 3 older brothers, 2 younger sisters, and 2 younger brothers. My father is deceased survived by my mother who weaves Yei-bi-chei rugs. My parents brought us up with Navajo traditions and at the same time encouraged us to get a good education.

I graduated in 1981 from Shiprock high school then moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Took Diesel mechanic classes at TVI and graduated in 1984. I then worked in the field of Diesel mechanic for about ten years, while at the same time practicing how to make and buff jewelry.

I met my wife Rena in 1984 and we have 3 boys’ ages 26, 20, and 10 years old and 1 granddaughter 10 mos. Rena got me into the jewelry business because her family was in the jewelry business doing piece work .

I got started by buffing and polishing for my mother-in-law. Later I got a buffing job and learned how the pieces were put together. Soon I Worked my way up to a silversmith position with my welding skills and my artistic talents. I get my ideas from attending different tribal dances and going to all sorts of art shows. My favorite pieces are the 3 dimensional one-of-a-kind kachinas among contemporary jewelry. I also work with gold and learning how to perfect in-lay work. Making masters for casting is also my specialty.
