We are pleased to present our online exhibition FROM THE MESAS: Arts and Crafts of the Hopi Pueblos in celebration of our collaboration and sponsorship of the Georgia O\'Keeffe Museum exhibition:
\"Georgia O\'Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam and the Land\" - May 17 - September 11, 2013
This beautiful exhibition tells the little-known story of how the New Mexico landscape, and O\'Keeffe\'s introduction to Hispanic and Indigenous art and architecture, inspired a significant shift in her painting. In addition to O\'Keeffe\'s iconic landscapes, it includes newly discovered paintings, as well as work by Hopi artists Ramona Sakiestewa and Dan Namingha. Enjoy viewing Shiprock Santa Fe\'s interpretation of this landmark exhibition.

Navajo Silversmiths adapted the naja from the Spanish who brought the Moorish design to the New World in the 1600\'s. The naja is often featured on Navajo squash blossom necklaces and is a ubiquitous symbol associated with Southwest jewelry design. The meaning behind the naja transcends history for the Navajo and Pueblo artisans and has become a symbol of their celebrations, ceremonies and culture.
Shiprock Santa Fe has a variety offerings from the collectible museum quality to affordable fashion design.

Have you been wondering what the measurements for the bracelets on our website mean? Do you know what your wrist size is?
Simply take a soft measuring tape and measure the circumference of your wrist between the wrist bone and the hand. Most women will average 6"-7", most men average 7"-8". We use the same soft tape to measure the interior length of our bracelets, then add the opening size which equals the total circumference of the bracelet. Please keep in mind, some bracelets can be opened and resized, and some bracelets can be closed in, or even shaved down by the artist or one of our expert jewelers if need be. We also try to measure the width of a cuff for you to get a good idea of scale. We hope this helpful guide will help you pick the perfect sized bracelet for your collection from our website!
Shiprock Santa Fe invites you to our online February Sales Event!

Shiprock does it again! We are mixing Navajo textiles with modern furnishings and featuring twill saddle blankets, the most notoriously difficult of all weavings to create. Twill techniques were used in the Classic Era for wearing blankets, then used for utilitarian weavings such as saddle blankets as the 20th Century began. The loom is the most difficult to work with and the warps can easily get confused. The twill weave has a thicker loft because the textile is weft-faced but the wefts pass over more than one warp at a time and are staggered, giving the appearance of a diagonal weave. It is this thickness that gave historic twill weavings functionality, though their subtle elegant patterns are worthy of being art showpieces.
Please contact the gallery for pricing on items displayed in this image.
Best in Show winner Rebecca Begay creates intricate tufa cast sterling silver designs with a feminine sensibility. Enjoy browsing our current selections that she delivered for our special Holiday opening event!
