Ira T. Custer

One of the two Custer brothers (Gary is the other) whose reputation is based on their award-winning and imaginative tufa cast jewelry. Like his brother, Ira has won many awards at Santa Fe Indian Market and elsewhere. With a long family background in silversmithing, he combines tufa casting and stamp work in traditional and more contemporary styles. His daughters Chenoa and Cheyenne are carrying on the family tradition, winning prizes on their own.
