They take a fresh approach by creating not only jewelry made with the finest of workmanship, but everything is created to bring your eyes in like a magnet! You'll find their jewelry is different, aesthetically eye appealing, colorful & like past days from their ancestors where everything is literally made by hand.
Their work stands out so much that it caught the eyes of the judges at the 2018 Santa Fe Indian Market, where they ended up taking home the 1st Place Award in the Best of Class jewelry category, beating out literally 100's of other jewelry artists that were showing there! (See 3rd photo) Then later that year, they took home another 1st place at Denver's version of Indian Market called "Tesoros".Their work is the cleanest youll find, with the most impeccable workmanship that is so perfect that you would think it was machine made! They use no calipers to measure to make their pieces as perfect as they are, but rather everything is done by eye & feel. Nothing from any manufactures are used in their jewelry. It's pieces like these that win awards! These Powerhouse', modern day Kewa earrings are not your'everyday' Pueblo style earrings & are made with a look that you can wear on the fashionable streets of NYC to anywhere else in the world! They are highly fashionable & you may agree that they are extremely different from any other earrings your gonna find! Anchored from a hand made/stamped sterling button is a perfectly formed barrel of bright blue Sleeping Beauty turquoise that is hand mosaic'd by Reyes with accent colors of red Spiny oyster that sits at both top & bottom.. The shell is so precisely blended into the form, with no line of demarcation! Farrell is one of the most impressive heishi cutters, where if you run the length of the strand with a millimeter gauge, you will get the same measurement throughout! Whether your hair is long, worn up & tousled, or short, these have such presence that will definitely be noticed!
They are beautifully made with a contemporary 21st century Pueblo look, while maintaining ancestral techniques. Since winning the award, Farrell & Reyes are climbing the ladder to success & they have become highly collectible!These are "Pueblo Jewelry at it's Finest"!
