About the Artist

The potters of Santo Domingo Pueblo in New Mexico are known for well-formed pottery decorated with dramatic stylized flora, often in combination with geometric designs.

Santo Domingo Pueblo also hosts jewelers with expertise in creating the finest heishi as well as shell overlay work. In the early years, some overlay work combined traditional turquoise, jet and shell with unorthodox modern materials such as poker chips and phonograph records.

Medium olivella shell (white and light brown), natural turquoise, sterling silver hook and eye. Sing bead consists of turquoise, red & white poker chip material & black battery casing
