Just In!!!! An EXCEPTIONAL MARY TAFOYA-Mosaic Inlaid-Multi BIRD Squash Blossom Necklace!

Literally taking month's to make, this showcases Mary's incredible eye & talent for mosaic art! You might call Mary a "painter",but instead of using paint brush's & a canvas,this artist 'paints' her subjects in a mosaic array of stones & shells.

Designed in a lengthy 35" 'slip over the head' length,this necklace can only bring out a positive vibe when you wear it!

THINK HOLIDAYS!!!

"The Land of Enchantment" is the oldest form of medicine" -*unknown*

Whether you're a proud New Mexican or one who just loves everything about the state,then this will be a cuff you'll be proud to show off!!

Called the "Zia Cross & Arrows" cuff,this is made by Navajo artisan Ronnie Willie who used THE heaviest gauge sterling to make it! Having an approximate 2.7 mm thickness,this is made with 8 GAUGE sterling which makes it literally non-adjustable/destructible & has to fit based of the gauge. It's strong,heavy & weighs 7.28 OUNCES!! (206.4 Grams)

It's a UNISEX cuff that's made for a larger 7-1/2" wrist size & for those of you with a 'fleshy' wrist,the wide 1-1/2" gap will help!
This is masculine enough for you 'manly men' to wear,but will also show beautifully on a woman!

Having been in the industry now for decades,Federico has paid his dues & deserves all the recognition that's been coming his way!

Yes, it was "One Man's Remarkable Journey from Tututepec to L.A." (https://www.amazon.com/Federico-Remarkable-Journey-Tututepec-L/dp/0816540780/ref=sr_1_1?crid=127HQU1LSNCSY&dchild=1&keywords=federico+jimenez&qid=1633036017&sprefix=federico+jim%2Caps%2C275&sr=8-1)and if it wasn't for that long journey,none of us would have ever gotten a taste of his various genres of phenomenal looking jewelry,with a list to long to put in writing!!

He is one designer that is not afraid to do these HUGE,Bold Statement pieces in massive form..From movie stars,models & everyone in between,there is a thirsty bunch of us that are dying to have anything made that bares the "FJ" hallmark!

This is a MUST SEE:
Recently CNN/Español:
https://cnnespanol.cnn.com/video/federico-jimenez-hispano-joyero-triunfa-hollywood-oaxaca-pkg-gonzalo-alvarado-herencia-hispana/
We are all very proud of you Federico for all these blessings that have been coming your way & you are so deserving of each & every one!!

I am extremely proud to carry a vast selection of jewelry by this incredible designer..But if you really want to get a taste of what he's about,just check out this massive statement style Cleopatra necklace that I just got in!! Yes,this is the same necklace shown in the CNN clip about 27 seconds in the clip..(Soon to be listed!) Only one was made & it's only at #platadesantafejewelry where you get only the FINEST jewelry by Federico!

No other designer can give you the elegance & beauty of just about every type of pearl & put a 'runway ready' feel,with such a modern day vibe, than what bares Federico's name..Known for his 'Larger than Life-Over the Top-Statement'" designs,this designer reigns top in the jewelry industry for just that.While some are designing 'pea' size jewelry, this designer takes it to a level where others fear to go,with these being the perfect example!

The large 3-1/2" x 2-3/8" 1/2 moon (or Sun!) design spans the width of the ear,they are that large!! Weighing just under 3 ounces combined weight, it was a wise choice to make them in a clip style earring!

Known for his jewelry that can make you grasp for breathe & leave you weak in the knees, Federico's name is written all over this massively HUGE "Kachina Maiden" turquoise cluster ring! Made with some fabulous hand picked turquoise choices that are precisely chose to create the depiction of a "KACHINA MAIDEN"..

Made with both Arizona's Morenci turquoise(The face,the body,a few in the headdress) & Arizona's Sleeping Beauty turquoise (For one of it's feet & the little blue cuts outside the body) as well as Nevada's Royston turquoise for most of it's headdress..

What can put a smile on your face is the excellent choice in the facial cut that looks like the face actually has eyes & a mouth!! It's this cut alone that could not have been a better choice for the ring!!! Comes with an adjustable "Bypass" shank that is presently set at a size 7-1/2. Just under 3-1/2" Tall x 2-1/2" wide.

Tap for sound!

We are drooling over these luxurious and fashionably chic,multi stone cluster bracelets in by Federico!

Renowned for pushing the boundaries of design, these 2 cluster bracelets are "Over the Top" in style,while boasting an elegant 5th Ave. statement style high-end look!

They are designed with natural-high grade turquoise that came from the Larry Cooley collection and were mined back in the 50s and 60s,with the majority being from the top Nevada mines.

Both bracelets were given careful consideration for their equally sized stones, that dictate their uniform and precise look!

These are not your "everyday-seen all over the Internet" types of bracelets and once they're gone, they're gone! Choose from a 18 panel-90 Stone or 14 panel-70 stone!

I have quite a few favorite artists,but I have to admit that some sit more at the top of my list more than others.Navajo artisan "Delbert Gordon" is definitely one that is high at the top for me! He is known for working in heavy gauge metal & because of the top notch quality workmanship that bares his name,as well as the era he comes from,it would be a joke to use nothing less than premium stones to pair with his extraordinarily made pieces!

This is made with hand made traditional Navajo appliqué's,where the whole shank is completely covered with appliqué's layered atop of appliqué's,which gives it an ornate feel.The interior of the shank is even stamped in its entirety! Premium Mediterranean Coral sits highlighted & secured in his hand made serrated bezel & is finished in a vintage revival-chiaroscuro finishing that makes the sterling gleam!!

Made for a larger 7" wrist size, so this will look as handsome on a man's wrist, as it will look stunning on a woman!

13 days till Christmas & how would you like this beauty under your tree????!!!!

Exquisite & stunning,this is a statement necklace done in a heavily clustered layout that's made with a handpicked choice of turquoise that was mined backed in the 50's-60's & was originally apart of Larry Cooley's vast collection of top notch,natural turquoise that he passed on to Federico before he passed..Federico took these stones & made them into some of his better designed jewelry.To see the additional photos & to learn more about this "one of a kind" piece,click on link!

11/25/2020

Made by Navajo artisan "La Rose Ganadonegro" whose work I truly admire based on the obvious pride that goes into each and every piece she makes, with everything showing her meticulous qualities for perfection!! Sloppy and hurried work is NOT in this artist's vocabulary and you can never go wrong with anything La Rose makes!!

Designed with the rich warm vibrant hues that emulate a fiery New Mexico sunset!! This is sold as a set, where the 4-1/4" sized pendant is made with generous cuts of 3 different colors of premium quality Spiny Oyster shell and it has accenting colors of Lapis and Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.The bale has a large 18 mm (around 3/4") opening so some big millimeter size Navajo pearls will accommodate it!!
 

The Spiny Oyster and Lapis earrings come in a 2-3/8" length, so they won't distract or take away from the pendant.

Would make a fabulous gift!! One of a Kind and ONLY at: #platadesantafejewelry "Where you get the look of Santa Fe!!"

Our Story

How I got started & Who I am

WHO I AM: I was blessed with a eye for anything beautiful,elegant,top quality,with the ability of standing out from the rest..One might say,jewelry was my calling....I live & breathe jewelry & it has always been the focus of my life...I have a highly trained 'Designers eye' & have a number of years experience in jewelry with almost a 1/2 century involved,under my belt.

I am a 'one woman show' who designs,photographs,runs a business both online & owns a retail store here in Santa Fe.I make it a point to carry the best & what you are not going to get in my store is "average,touristy,common'style jewelry.I look for those pieces that stand out & avoid carrying what everyone else carry's. And once a piece gets made 20 or more times,I avoid it,since then,it is commercial..
