A very young, very new jeweler, who shows much promise. Is it possible that the fact she is married to top, award-winning jeweler Lyndon Tsosie might have influenced her? With young children and a full load of studying, she has added jewelry to her agenda, as well. Her first pieces have been in copper, since the high price of silver is a deterrent. Her work is meticulous, and her designs incorporate tradition and a fresh look. We are delighted to welcome lovely Valerie to the world of jewelry artists.
