Vernon Haskie is a Native American jeweler from Lukachukai, Arizona; the heart of the Navajo Nation. As a child he observed his parents, Leonard and Lillie Haskie, making inlay jewelry, and created his first pendant at the age of nine. Not soon after, his father, Leonard Haskie taught him the basics of silver-smithing.

As a teenager, Vernon Haskie was making green stone malachite scorpion jewelry on the weekends with attending high school in Farmington. He then went on to serve in the Army and obtain a bachelor's degree in biology from UNM. Upon graduation, Vernon Haskie returned home and began to pursue his jewelry making more rigorously.

He started with small silver overlay pieces, like pendants, rings, and earrings. As a growing artist, Vernon Haskie transitioned from utilizing templates for his jewelry pieces to custom designed work. Most influenced by Harvey Begay and Charles Loloma, his extraordinary jewelry features multi-layered inlay and settings with precious and semi-precious stones, including turquoise, coral diamonds and opals.

Vernon Haskie aspires to make a contribution to the history of Native American art by creating pieces that will be studied and admired by future generations, and hopefully inspire future Native American artists.
