Terry Martinez

A brother of Calvin Martinez, he carries on the famed Martinez clan’s devotion to the creation of finely wrought jewelry in the style of previous generations. Using only fine, natural turquoise, Terry prefers the ingot style, using rolled and hand pounded techniques to create his own, dramatic versions of traditional, if not retro, style. His work is featured in prominent galleries throughout the country. An award-winner, like the rest of his brothers, he regularly places first in the Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial.
