Angie Reano Owen is a contemporary jeweler from Santo Domingo Pueblo. Angie’s work is sought after because of her innovative style that uses the traditional style incorporated into the contemporary market.
In 1995 Angie was selected by the School for Advanced Research for a two month residence. During this time she studied SAR’s collection of inlaid mosaic jewelry and helped catalog information. She continued to work at SAR after the fellowship was over and helped plan the Pueblo Mosaic Jewelry Convocation of 1997.
Angie is primarily known for her shell inlaid jewelry techniques. She uses delicate pieces of turquoise, jet and coral inlaid in a mosaic pattern on shell. This style dates back to the ancient Anasazi and Hohokam Indian culture. The inlaid pieces can be used as earrings or on necklaces.
