American Indian Artists

Posted by

Santa Fe, New Mexico Series

American Indian artists sell their beautiful jewelry under the portal of the Palace of the Governors across from the Santa Fe Plaza as part of the Native American Vendors Program. Like most visitors, we did some shopping (and buying!) there.

It was a chilly late September morning when we arrived, and I made my first purchase from this lovely Native American. Their work is authentic, made and signed by the artists, not just the trinkets found in souvenir stores.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

You captured so many of the details along with her portrait.
The roll of tape, the pink mirror, her cell phone in addition to her jewelry, which seems to be made of silver, gold and copper.

Neat capture Barbara. I like her sweet expression, and the array of detail beneath her humble attire. The gold coins matching her lap blanket. Good eye.
