Perry Null is doing what he loves - trading with the area’s Native American People and meeting customers from all over the world. It has made his life full and very interesting. He starting working in the Indian Jewelry business in 1970. His life has been shaped by the many different experiences over the last three decades.
Perry’s first experience in the Trading Post business was buying jewelry from Native American silversmiths, in order to sell it. He was able to find some good silversmiths that also taught him some valuable things about the business. Navajo silversmiths Herman Charlie, Luke Begay, and Tom Claw made him several things in the early years. It was during this time that he learned about turquoise, silver, and how things are made. Perry would be asked to appraise the C.G. Wallace collection, judge at the Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial, and countless times approached to answer questions and appraise hand made Native American art and crafts.
