Coral Hollow Tear 1Tear-shaped Coral and Silver Shadowbox Pendant

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.

Pueblo Grande Museum Indian Market – this weekend!

Pueblo Grand Museum Indian Market logoI’ll be exhibiting at the Indian Market this weekend! Juried show! Find unique pieces for the holidays. Visit me and check out my new work.

I was at this show last year, and the site is beautiful. There is something relaxing about the desert this time of year. The light and the colors are soft, and they shift throughout the day. The earth is almost a golden wheat color, with shades of pinks and purples and deep oranges that shift throughout the day.

The Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary is proud to host the 37th Annual Indian Market on December 14 & 15, 2013. The market will offer an array of activities for children and adults, including exceptional American Indian Music and dance, a variety of native foods, sweet and savory fry bread, other treats and authentic American Indian fine art, collectibles and cultural exhibits. A perfect place for last minute holiday shopping.

Pueblo Grand Museum Kick-Off EventA new feature has been added to this year’s market, Ki:him – community village where cultural demonstrations and presentations will take place, providing guests with hands on access to everyday activities past and present and opportunities to interact and learn about the culture through storytelling, music, song, dance, games and native foods. Ki:him is the O’odham word for community village. While representatives of the four Southern communities of the O’odham people, descendants of the ancient Hohokam will be participating in the Ki:him, there will also be artists and representatives from various other tribes participating in the community village as well.

Come to the 37th Annual Pueblo Grande Museum Indian Market it’s a perfect place for last minute holiday shopping and a great opportunity to learn more about American Indian history and culture, past and present.
