Located in the heart of historic Boulder City is quite the impressive collection of handmade Native American jewelry, featuring the artistry of American Indians all throughout the southwest. That, and of course, the award winning work of store owner Erick Begay. After his mother taught him the art of silversmithing, Erick began making jewelry when he was only 11 years old.
