Congratulations on the American Craft article. I forwarded the link and a link to your website to Florida Craftsmen. I'm not sure what their exhibit schedule/needs are but I told them you were looking to travel the show.
Thanks for the compliment and for sending me a request! I really enjoy following your blog! To answer your question, some of the images are mine, but the most recent ones were taken by a friend of mine, Tiffiney Yazzie, a photography student here at ASU.

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
