Unique Works of Art
Traditional Native American Craftsmanship
Darlene loves beadwork and stretching her creativity. When she created some pyramid earrings... it was by accident. She dropped a piece she was working on and the idea sparked in her head because of the way it landed. These are the types of things that spur her art and get her to branch out and try all kinds of designs.
Meet the Artist
Meet Darlene, Navajo Jewelry Artist
Darlene has been making turquoise necklaces and other Navajo jewelry for almost 30 years.
She says she learned the skill from her in-laws.
Using turquoise, silver, glass beads, and shell she crafts these beautiful jewelry pieces.
Darlene is of the Nakai Diné Clan.
Turquoise to our Diné is important.
Representing the "Blue World", it tells the Holy People... "We know where we come from".
Turquoise is a semi-precious stone.
These small turquoise nuggets are stabilized to make them last the test of time.
Turquoise is also worn for protection when roaming outside of the sacred mountains.
“...that large turquoise piece in Roy Huskies pendant Islands is the most beautiful turquoise I've ever seen. and being born and always living in S.W. Oklahoma Native Country I've seen plenty. I've got to take a picture of it. It just grabs me and I love to just look and admire it.”
“Thank you for sharing your teachings and culture. I find Wally's films really great to watch and I love his no nonsense way of explaining. Please can I have a notification when your new Turquoise jewelry is ready for purchase.”
“This afternoon, I had a discussion with my niece and nephew about wearing turquoise and why it’s important especially when we do not reside in the four scared mountains. I didn’t know all the other details mentioned... now I can provide more context to my niece and nephew about wearing turquoise and silver when I see them again.”
“…I am delighted to find the necklace that you are offering and to know that it is authentic and that it represents a return to traditional teachings. Thank you so much for helping me to put through my order. Blessings.”
