Contemporary Navajo Jewelry
While I utilize a variety of materials and processes in each piece, my methodology remains consistent. My intent is to bring into fruition my personal ideas with an underlying theme of traditional yet contemporary Navajo Jewelry.
My designs come from interpretation of the world around me. I continue to challenge my abilities with metal by discovering new ways to create a piece that is uncomplicated and multifaceted. This approach allows me to maintain the traditional styles of my Navajo heritage along with a more contemporary twist to my finished wearable work. I enjoy the visual effects of coupling hand cut gemstones and minerals with my metal designs. I utilize hand selected raw materials and shape them to perfectly fit each pieces. This allows me creative freedoms to design forms from beginning to end.to design forms from beginning to end.
