From Bar to Bench

Friends of Indian Art


David McElroy is a Santa Fe-based silversmith and member of the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma. After practicing law for nearly two decades in a variety of fields, including criminal, Federal Indian, tribal and international corporate law, David gave up his legal career to move to Santa Fe and pursue art. Now working as a silversmith, he has traded life in the courtroom for life in the studio, making jewelry and other items in sterling, fine silver and gold, with a focus on hand-chasing and repoussé designs. David will talk about his career in Indian law as well as his transition to life as an artist.

John Andrews: Making Sure No Wool Was Pulled Over His Eyes

Friends of Indian Art


John Andrews, owner of Native Jackets, will speak to us about the development of his business which began on the web in 1998 selling Indian blanket jackets. After meeting Mark Winter of Toadlena Trading Post, he saw that he could trust his eye and started investing more in Navajo rugs, Pueblo pottery, and Native baskets. Now native art sales exceed the jacket sales, and have for several years. John will show us beautiful tapestry weavings made by living master weavers, antique treasures, and Pendleton blankets.
