I've been making Hopi Overlay since April 2016. Took a class with Gerald Lomaventema and he taught me about overlay techniques stating with copper first. Learning the way the older people learned back in the 1940's, when overlay was introduced. Worked with tuufa (volcanic rock) fro casting silver learned how to make bezels and set stones, making handmade chains and links. Learned the 1900 style working coin silver making input bars and bailing out our sheets. I've been excepted into the South West Indian Art market in Santé Fe New Mexico in 2017 and 2018. I've also showcase at the Heard Guild Museum in 2018 and 2019. been to the Grand Canyon to do my presentations and demonstrations. Attended the Hopi Show at the Museum of Northern Arizona doing demonstrations in 2016 an 2017.
