I’m excited to be showing new designs at the 16th Annual Prescott Indian Art Market this weekend at the Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott.
This is a juried show and one of the Southwest’s premier Indian-art markets.
Come visit! It would be great to see you there.
Hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday.
The Sharlot Hall Museum is located in the heart of downtown Prescott, two blocks west of the Courthouse Plaza at 415 W. Gurley Street. Admission prices are $10 for Adults (18 and over) and $8 for Museum Members (18 and over). Those aged 17 and under are free.
Another one of my “Parent and Child” pieces, this necklace is comprised of two highly polished silver and copper shadowbox beads. The copper is reddened by heating to a very high temperature, and depending on the angle and the lighting, may look purplish maroon to a deep orange red.
The beads may be worn together, or separately, allowing for three different looks.
Signed on the back. Entirely hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind.
This was the first item to sell at the Prescott Indian Art Market last weekend.
