We celebrated our Artists of the Year, Shane Hendren, Navajo, at our Wholesale Market

at Isleta Resort and Casino in April. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and

honor their achievements.

Navajo jeweler,

Shane R. Hendren

, took top honors and a $3000 award, as the

IACA

2017 Artist of the Year

. This year's win marks an unprecedented fourth time

that Hendren has achieved this honor. Hendren also captured the honor in 2007, 2014,

and 2016.

This beautiful necklace, entitled

“Water is Life”

is made from

sterling silver, 14kt gold, and

natural Kingman turquoise.

All components are hand-

fabricated and hand-engraved

in the round. The design and

materials of the necklace repre-

sent an interpretation of water

in all its forms. "The combina-

tion of turquoise (water) and

engraving (life) harmoniously

join in this piece,” Hendren

shared.

Shane R. Hendren is a Master

Metal Smith and Artist who

has spent a lifetime working at

his craft. For the past twenty

years his principal focus has

been on jewelry rooted in his

Navajo heritage, incorporating

traditional iconography and

symbolism while employing

advanced metals techniques

such as Mokume Gane, and

engraving. (
