Artist Jock Favour is a true master-craftsman. He hand cuts stones and pours his own silver ingot bars to have complete control of his materials. And when he casts a piece, he carves tufa molds that give his jewelry a texture that’s only achieved through this labor-intensive process.
Favour pays tribute to Native American makers by using these old-world techniques that date back to the early 1900’s. It’s this approach, coupled with his material selection and lifetime of artistry that makes his jewelry special. He’s celebrated for his oxidized silver cuffs, weathered turquoise stones, and colorful mosaic inlays. Each piece manages to feel antique, yet timeless in design.
Favour lives and works in Arizona. He’s been a maker since he was a child, and he celebrates Southwestern style with his work. Favour takes care to achieve balance in his jewelry and ensures all the materials work in harmony, an attitude shared by many Southwestern artisans.
