Jewelry + Pottery

My Art, this has long been a form of resistance. From the silver coins my ancestors would melt down to make jewelry, to the point the U.S. government had to remove silver coinage & replace them with paper forms of 10 & 5 cent denominations.

Each piece I create is a small representation of me as an artist. All of the pieces include hand-cut metals, and I in-person select every piece of turquoise that goes into my art. They are melted & joined, shaped & shaved.

Each piece I've done is an exchange of energy. In my culture, our prayer & intention goes into each piece & acts as a form of protection.

You can commission a piece of my custom jewelry in my online shop.
