The third generation of a family of cutting-edge Zuni jewelers, this artist is famous and widely collected. She has been much honored for her flair in combining stones and beads in dramatic, totally one-of-a-kind necklaces – like this one, a fascinating combination of the opulent and the delicate, She confidently mixes up the scale to maximum effect, going against conventional rules, by combining a dramatically large green”Dragon Scale” turquoise with three separate strands of fine red coral, casually arranged, and adding 22 karat gold beads to ramp up the magnificence factor.The oval frame around the splendid stone, the dangles, the intricacy of the gold beadwork cones; the bold colors and general splendor of the necklace, lend an air of Queen-Victoria-meets-the-Czar – but wouldn’t it look gorgeous with a turtleneck and slacks?! And perfect for the holidays! Connaisseurs are already aware of the museum collections her work is in; now you can have your own, museum-worthy collection.
