I went to Indian Market for the first time this year. it was a fun filled day with lots of energy shared with sellers and visitors. It was a people watching extrodinair. I have lots and lots of Southwestern items of which I did not wear. Foolish me next time I will drip myself with as much as my body can stand. No blah look for me. The other women and some men did just that.

I walked all the booths but found my one item in the the little plaza in front of the Loretto Hotel. This is not an official part of the Market.

I own several Don Lucas pieces. The first one bought in 1995 and the latest at the Bakersfild showroom this spring. I live part of the year in Taos, New Mexico and grew up in Bakersfield and visit often. So……… Always a Don Lucas piece available for me…

Good article Don. It sounds like fun if you were in the right frame of mind. And by “right frame of mind” I mean inebriated.

I was at Indian Market this year – my second year. I love it! The hustle and bustle along with the beautiful and unique art displayed is always a treat. Visiting with familiar artists from one year to the next is always a treat. It almost seems like everyone knows everyone else and it’s a family feel with a huge diverse gathering of people from all over the world. At any given time you can hear as many as 3 or 4 different languages being spoken. My father lived in Santa Fe for 20 years and it feels like a second home to me. He loved visiting both Spanish and Indian Markets every year and had tales to tell. I encourage anyone who has interest in Native American art and jewelry to visit. I did my part to help stimulate the economy this year :)

The Silver Bead Experiment

The silver bead experiment has been completed. It actually took a little longer than I thought since I had not made them in a long time, but once I got going it was pretty smooth sailing, though it was very time consuming. The reason for this is that there are so many steps involved. I...

Silver beads of sweat

Why am I making silver beads again? Am I nuts or just in need some serious therapy? I used to make my own silver beads back in the old days when I had lots of time on my hands. They are very time consuming and you have to make a bunch of them for just...

I remember when Annalee and I used to help you make silver beads 25 years ago– dop and file. It is such a time consuming process… You were smart to hire us as cheap labor. I am nostalgic for silver beads because they remind me of working in the shop with you. I always loved being there with you. Looks like a big, fat strand of dad-made silver beads will be on my Christmas list this year! Glad you are making them again!!

Don… damn good show! I’m encouraged by your example of ‘keeping up’.

Kelly Gifford - September 29, 2011 - 3:21 AM

Gorgeous work. I am a fan. Recently, purchased a beautiful hammered silver square pendant, with a horse fetish in the center. It has become my most cherished piece. I am looking for a two-tone silver & gold. or silver bead necklace to accompany it. Any ideas?
