I’m back from New Mexico with much to report. I had the color palette right…
…but was surprised by some other findings. There are even more galleries and more art there than I could have expected.
However, only a small sliver of the jewelry is not silver and turquoise. Woven and multicolored pieces that retailers like Urban Outfitters carry that look to be Santa Fe inspired are just that- a play on something that local artisans do not usually make.
Here are the most interesting necklaces I encountered that still incorporate blues and oranges but depart from traditional rectilinear styling (the second is from Casa Nova). They’ll pair great with a crisp white button down and jeans.
