I have been working really hard for this show! One-of-a-kind fine art pieces take time to make, I wish I could post everything I am creating as I make it, but there just isn’t time.
To be in this show has been a dream of mine – and it’s coming true! I am honored and grateful to be one of the chosen artists to be at this event.
This is a big deal!
I hope to see some of you there. If you read my blog, stop by and say “Hello.”
Santa Fe, New Mexico
“The Santa Fe Indian Market is a 92-year-old Native art market. It is the largest and most prestigious Native arts market in the world and the largest cultural event in the southwest. The yearly event is held during the third weekend of August. Over 1,100 Native artists from the U.S. and Canada sell their artwork. The Indian Market attracts 150,000 visitors to Santa Fe from all over the world. Buyers, collectors and gallery owners come to Indian Market to take advantage of the opportunity to buy directly from the artists. For many visitors, this is a rare opportunity to meet the artists and learn about contemporary Indian arts and cultures. Quality and authenticity are the hallmarks of the Santa Fe Indian Market.”
Here is a video of last year’s activities and performances:
Brushed silver carries red coral punctuated by the deep black in the shadowbox. The cut out at the top of the pendant flows with the overall shape of the tear and the coral. Holes in the side of the pendant allow the necklace to be seen through the front.
Coral and silver are a classic southwestern combination of materials, shown here with a new twist.
Entirely hand-crafted, this pendant is approximately a two inches long by an inch-and-a-half wide and a quarter inch deep. The coral is one-of-a-kind, as is the entire piece. Shown with a sixteen-inch silver omega necklace (separate from the pendant). Hand-signed on the back.
