On this beautiful piece, artist David Naranjo is opting for a little restraint by keeping the design to an elegant, and shape flattering hourglass line of triangles on the front and an elongated "eye" pattern on the back. Thin parallel lines within the triangles add a level of richness and interest, and all hand painted lines are rendered with his signature precision.

Naranjo added some micaceous oxides to the silver paint for an extra metallic shimmer, which is wonderfully set off by the silver lining fabric that peeks out at the cuffs and collar. Dress this one up over classic black with chunky silver jewelry, or dress down over a white blouse and your favorite skinny jeans and ballet flats. Either way this one's a winner!

David Naranjo's Bio

Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico

“I am a contemporary Puebloan artist and a 2018 graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, working in multiple media to depict cultural symbolism through pottery designs and fine geometrical linear work.”

“My inspiration comes from learning the Tewa language of my Pueblo. While learning the language, I obtained a deeper understanding of and connection to our cultural practices and found that a lot can be said with few words because you speak from your heart. I found our way of life to be a form or poetry and seek to show understanding and respect while making art as a form of prayer and ceremony.”

“Puebloan symbols and iconography hold meaning and purpose within our cultural setting. I am creating my own personal narratives and stories using these traditional designs.”
