Teddy Draper, Jr. is the son of a WWII Navajo “Code Talker” Ted Draper, Sr. and has been the recipient of many prestigious awards for his art. He is a master of pastels and excels in oils, watercolor, and traditional and contemporary jewelry. The unique Draper pastel technique, constantly refined over more than thirty years, is his own personal style and his interpretation and artistic vision of what he calls “them unseen colors”. Ted resides on the rim of the Canyon de Chelly near his studio and gallery with his wife, noted jeweler Ophelia Garcia.
Ophelia is especially known for her curved bracelets, which seem to hug the wrist ergonomically. She uses the finest quality stones and is considered a master silversmith. Along with Teddy, she has been known to use the very rare Maw Sit Sit (only found in Burma) in her amazing pieces, a stone like no other. She and Teddy sometimes collaborate on pieces, as well as making their own jewelry separately from each other. Ophelia has won many awards for her gorgeous work, and is recognized worldwide for her unique style and flawless execution.
