Silver Belt Buckles with a Southwest Flair

Once again Roy Talahaftewa will share with us his exceptional technical and artistic abilities. In this workshop we are going to tackle a belt buckle. The face plate will be designed and then fabricated using many techniques - overlay, stamping, stone setting, riveting, and texturing. Roy will review and demonstrate these skills, but expects that participants will have a working knowledge of these techniques prior to the workshop. Roy will instruct us on how to fabricate findings to create the belt loop and stem, using the method he has developed for his own personal work. It will be a challenging workshop.

BIO: Roy Talahaftewa (Hopi Water Clan) is from Shungopovi Village in Arizona. He works in silver and gold, and uses Hopi overlay, symbolism, and surface embellishments in his designs. Roy received his first major award for his work in 1981, and has earned Best of Show at the Heard Museum, among many others. Working with the nonprofit Pu'tavi Project, Roy teaches Hopi youth the art of metalsmithing and is an advocate and promoter of Hopi artists on the reservation. He teaches workshops at numbers of venues across the United States.
