Jesse Monongya is an award winning Navajo / Hopi Indian jeweler that creates astonishing custom pieces with a contemporary Native American Indian design. He is based in Scottsdale, Arizona - a center for American Indian Art.
His work has ranged from the use of silver and simply cut turquoise and coral to the highly technical and intricate designs of the galaxies and heavens in lapis, jade, malachite, and diamonds set in 18k gold. While his work has evolved over the years, the superb color combination and balance of design are consistently present.
"More than just jewelry, I create works of art that are both contemporary and spiritual"
