Fall greetings from Santa Fe and the Case Trading Post!

For the month of October, I am pleased to present the wonderful Hopi overlay jewelry of Anderson and Berna Koinva. The Koinvas come to us from the Village of Shungopavi, Second Mesa, Arizona. Anderson learned the overlay technique from his late father in law Bernard Dawahoya, a well-respected overlay artist. He was given the patterns and designs from Bernard and still uses them today. We are pleased to carry the work of the Koinvas, which is always very cleanly designed, affordable, and striking. Take a moment to view these latest pieces that Anderson and Berna made for us.
