ABOUT THE ARTISTS
This husband-wife team, Farrell Pacheco and Reyes Rosetta Pacheco (Santo Domingo/Kewa) have been collaborating since 2010. Their work unites the legacy of Rey’s uncle, well-known jeweler, Martine Lovato, and Farrell’s grandfather who made heishi jewelry.
The couple says that their jewelry adheres to Lovato’s style, which means making their mosaic-style items from clipping raw material like turquoise into irregular pieces, unlike other inlay artists who often cut their materials to specific shapes and sizes and then inlay them to fit and match exactly. Then, the work goes through a double-sander and grinder for smoothness. “People often mistake it for paintwork, because you can’t feel much of the texture,” Rey said.
