Patricia McCleery has been fascinated with the amulets and talismans of
ancient cultures. The ancient cliff dwellings of the Southwest inspired
her to use Prehistoric Mammoth tusk, and Australian Boulder Opal in
combination with silver and 22K gold to create pieces that connect us to
a mysterious ancient message. An ancient message retold in modern time.
Celebrated in Santa Fe for her innovative designs, Patricia studied with
famed Hopi Jeweler Charles Loloma and designed for the Smithsonian
Catalog. Lapidary Journal, American Style Magazine and the Santa Fean
have noted her work.
