A younger artist, he beautifully combines the age-old tradition of Santo Domingo Pueblo (Ke Wa) heishi jewelry, with contemporary silver work. Here is a lovely example. “A river runs through it” – of finely cut, beautifully regular, natural, green turquoise heishi, that is. With enough variety of green hues to make it interesting, the heishi follows the curve of the sterling silver band, as it snakes across the wrist. The allusion to water is on purpose; it is the life source, and especially valued in the high desert. (Even the Rio Grande often runs low.)This contemporary bracelet shines, with gleaming silver in counterpoint to the woodsy green of the natural Carico Lake turquoise. It combines the ancient – in the heishi and the good-luck theme of water – with the contemporary, as seen in the asymmetrical flowing shape. It is sleek, stunning and surprisingly affordable, so don't tarry! (Also, keep in mind the holidays are creeping up on us; not too soon to start thinking gifts.)
