Kimberly Willie

In her twenties, and the daughter of highly reputed Jeweler Wes Willie, she has shown her traditional-style jewelry at Santa Fe Indian Market for a couple of years. She credits her father for teaching her the techniques of metal work and lapidary work. Like her father/mentor, she prefers to work with high grade turquoise, but Kimberly has developed her own traditional style, very different from Wes Willie’s contemporary work. Each generation does its own thing!
