Myron Panteah was a major, award-winning Navajo/Zuni jeweler whose work is included in several museum collections. His finely detailed jewelry is often intricately decorated with petroglyph symbols and figures, cut out using a fine hand saw. He worked in both silver and gold, and often combined them. He selected unusual, natural stones of high quality, including unexpected ones such as jaspers and agates, and combined all the elements in strikingly handsome, individual ways.
We regret to report that this exceptional artist, wonderful man and delightful friend, passed away, early in March, 2016. He is missed for his warm personality and – of course – for his distinctive artistic gifts.
Wright’s is happy to say we have additional pieces by this creative jeweler, and will be posting some more of them in the future.
