Contemporary Mosaic of Charlene Sanchez Reano

Charlene Sanchez-Reano is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born in 1960 into the Santo Felipe Pueblo. She attended New Mexico Highlands University, where she majored in art. She was inspired to continue the long lived tradition of hand making jewelry from her clan members using ancient methods of constructing the fine jewelry. Charlene married into the Santo Domingo Pueblo and thats where she honed her skills in traditional jewelry making the Santo Domingo style.

Santo Domingo jewelers have an incredible history of creating essentially the same type of jewelry perhaps for thousands of years. She collaborates with her husband, Frank Reano and they specialize in authentic handmade jewelry but the methods used to construct their beautiful pieces are the same ones which were passed down by the Reano family. While their beautiful pieces look very contemporary, the designs are combined with very ancient symbols. Charlene & Franks creativity and hard work have warranted the title of prize winning artists.
