Jim's Comanche name is Jim Littlewolf - his father was Comanche and his mother of Scotch-Irish descent. He grew up in both New Mexico and Texas. Following in his father's footsteps, Jim got into rodeo at an early age and became a full-time cowboy, working on various ranches.
As he got older, Jim has become more interested in Native American spiritualism and medicine. Now that he lives in the Eastern woodlands near Asheville, he has adopted some of the Cherokee ways of gardening and such.
When he was 15, his father took him to meet a friend who was a Navajo silvermsmith and Jim knew instantly that this art was something he needed to learn. He was already doing leatherwork and soon became a saddle maker and silversmith artist. His metal always has the look of a patina as if it were a found artifact. His jewelry production is much less than in his earlier years so you can be sure you have a rare piece - made entirely by Jim Littlewolf.
The Gallery carries his silver jewelry as well as his detailed leather wallets.
