  1. Dear Ilene,

    This is just fascinating. This piece does not seem to be recent art – rather conveys aura of Old Pawn in Navajo and Hopi and Zuni Country,out West. Or of keepsakes, such as Sandra Lisnak features in Foxfire Vintage Jewelry on-line.

    You make it seem as though, with this mentor, the nonartistic (I was given D in art because I couldn’t draw Blue Boy and Pink Lady in grade school) could create beautiful jewelry.

    Thank you for always expanding our horizons!

    Warm regards, Carolyn
