We will be open every day of the Tubac Festival of the Arts with our yearly treat, a visit from famed Navajo jewelry artist Artie Yellowhorse who will join us in our gallery from 10 am to 5 pm each day Wednesday, February 8th through Sunday, February 12th. She will have all her newest necklaces, pendants, bracelets, and earrings for you to see and try on.

And as a special treat for those of you who can’t make it to the gallery, we will also be hosting a Facebook Live event on Friday, February 10th and Saturday, February 11th at 1:00 pm. Each event will last 15 minutes and we’ll be showcasing many of Artie’s pieces and answering your questions.

About Artie Yellowhorse

Artie Yellowhorse is the matriarch of a family reared in the Navajo jewelry making tradition who specialize in fine handcrafted silver and stone jewelry made in “the Navajo beauty way.”

Yellowhorse was raised on the Navajo reservation and is part of the Towering House Clan. She is a third-generation silversmith, a practice begun by her grandfather, Cuthair Yellowhorse.

Today, Yellowhorse’s two daughters, Desiree and Lei Lani, create and design jewelry with their mother. Other family members also work in the business, including nephew Richard Yellowhorse and grandson James Yellowhorse. The family employs skilled Navajo and Pueblo artisans to produce the Yellowhorse Family designs.

Yellowhorse lives in Corrales, New Mexico and is the proud grandmother of seven grandchildren.
