Artist Duane Maktima Featured at Santa Fe Shop in Fish Creek

The Santa Fe Shops of Fish Creek will feature jeweler Maktima, a descent of Laguna and Hopi Pueblo. Jewelry has become a concept of his cultural heritage where color, motifs, and forms fuel his creative passion. The end results are handmade pieces of wearable art.

Maktima stated that his “culture professes that we have all we need, as provided by our mother and father, earth, sun and all the elements to sustain ourselves.” That is the creed of his design.

Thirty years of devout enthusiasm for his craft has brought him into the realm of being an award-winning designer. His passion began in 1979 as a student at Northern Arizona University where he majored in the Fine Arts Program. He has received over 1,200 awards and accolades throughout his career.

The Santa Fe Shop is located at 4147 Main Street, Fish Creek. For more information, call 920.868.4300.
