About the Artist

(1932-2002) McBride Lomayestewa was a jeweler from Hopi whose overlay jewelry was a major influence for the generation of Hopi artists in metal, such as Michael Kabotie, who was Lomayestewa's cousin.  It is believed McBride began making jewelry during the middle 1950's. A member of the Snow clan, McBride's hallmark is a lightning symbol.

His work is illustrated in The Beauty of Hopi Jewelry on page 38.  Citations of his work are also included in Gregory Schaaf's book. American Indian Jewelry II A-L.

He was awarded prizes at the Hopi Show held at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff and at Indian Market at Santa Fe from 1971 forward.
