Specializing in event style, statement jewelry with the focus on Native American & Oaxaca jewelry.I carry Roja clothing & Silverado's Saltillo Serape clothing,along with lots of Guadalupe Items,Mexican Folk Art, Mexican tooled leather purses,etc

WHO I AM: I was blessed with a eye for anything beautiful,elegant,top quality,with the ability of standing out from the rest.. One might say,jewelry was my calling....I live & breathe jewelry & it has always been the focus of my life...Wearing 'big' and a lot,seems to always have been apart of me. I am what you call a 'over the top' kind, in not only my tastes in jewelry,but my fashion,as well. Staying 'true' to who I am,has always been important. How I started in in the SW jewelry business,was back in 1973, when at that time,I moved to New Mexico from Oregon (by way of Chicago,Berkeley & Colorado) so I can be in a sunny state because of the clouds & rain of Oregon..That was one of the smartest moves I made,because I would not be where I am today or know as much as i know about the business & what I sell,if it wasn't for that move. At that time,I ended up becoming a silversmith while living in Albuquerque..This was when many more turquoise mines were still open & you could get 'natural',as well as much less per carat,turquoise. It was also at a time, when the Taiwanese were undercutting the Pueblo artists,by now producing machine made Heishi.. My specialty was making Zuni inspired pieces & found myself,creating cluster work & setting LOTS of tiny 2 mm stones..Workmanship" was drilled in me to no end,which has lead me to "what" I buy & "how" I buy, to this day . Because of my love of all jewelry styles, it opened up having knowledge in all facets, pertaining to jewelry & giving me experience in not only SW sterling pieces,but in gold,as well.. I have experience in all gems,cuts of gems,era style jewelry..My real love however is "Vintage Mexican jewelry" that was made in places like Taxco,Guadalajara & Mexico City,during the "Mexican Silver Renaissance"/Spratling days. I always say,"I would rather have a phenomenal Matl piece,before a diamond anyday"!! Having the eye I do, for the quality that I do,is what I use when I do my buying & I hope you love what I bring to the table! Its a look that has Santa Fe, written all over it! It's cultural,it's Folk Art,it's colorful,bold & it's what I love & what I am about!

Operating as usual

Ever since I first came across this type of art,it literally won me over & I practically drool whenever I see any!.A huge fan of colonial history & art,with the focus on anything Spanish Colonial that came from the 16th-18th century of Cusco Peru, is one thing that drew me to this "One of a Kind",hand painted oil painted purse that has a Museum quality painting of the HOLY FAMILY.The artist who painted this,studied under the masters of the Cusco School of Art & then Texas based-KURTMEN Designs does what they do best & that's to create a fine Italian leather purse that compliments the art & gives us a purse that can be treasured a lifetime!! The painting is displayed on a red embossed Damask Italian Leather that is made with a western edge that is all whip stitched & studded.This is Museum Art at it's best, that's made with the finest leather available to the industry! There is ONLY one of these & cannot be replaced!! Now available at: platadesantafejewelry.com

I'm always thrilled when I find ANYTHING by master Zuni Pueblo Mosaic inlay artist, Quentin Quam Sr. A pro at intricate, meticulously made mosaic-inlay jewelry, you would think that this may be a painted piece of art, when in all reality,the stone and shell is cut by hand to create this picturesque ring. This type of work is extremely tedious,very time-consuming and extremely challenging, especially when you're working with this small of materials! This is probably one of the prettiest hummingbird/Butterfly rings I have come across!! Comes in a size 8.

Feedback: Kim Yubeta Guadalupe Charm Necklace

Message:Oh, Plata! I am still speechless from unboxing the Guadalupe necklace. It is even more lovey than I remembered. And your pictures and thorough listing online did such a great job explaining and detailing this piece of art. I feel like it should be displayed in my home! So dang beautiful! And thank you for curating such a treasure trove of a store (more like a museum or gallery in my opinion)!

Casey-Posted on 4.7.20

These are made with a meticulous "eye for design" and what I would call an EXTREMELY well-designed earring,that will go into any personal collection with your more "Finer"Native American pieces. Just check out all the various shapes that make this a very stunning and very sophisticated earring! These are not just another pair of lapis earrings, but ones that deserve appreciation and respect! This husband-wife team do all their own lapidary work & cut & shape ALL the Lapis by hand! Now THAT is impressive! Lapis is one of the more dense stones,so this is not the easiest thing to do!! Made exclusively for Plata de Santa Fe Jewelry!Now on sale!

Our Story

How I got started & Who I am

WHO I AM: I was blessed with a eye for anything beautiful,elegant,top quality,with the ability of standing out from the rest..One might say,jewelry was my calling....I live & breathe jewelry & it has always been the focus of my life...I have a highly trained 'Designers eye' & have a number of years experience in jewelry with almost a 1/2 century involved,under my belt.

I am a 'one woman show' who designs,photographs,runs a business both online & owns a retail store here in Santa Fe.I make it a point to carry the best & what you are not going to get in my store is "average,touristy,common'style jewelry.I look for those pieces that stand out & avoid carrying what everyone else carry's. And once a piece gets made 20 or more times,I avoid it,since then,it is commercial..

My physical store here in SF, has Santa Fe written all over it..It's super colorful,with a Mexican Folk Art interior edginess & you may feel you are walking into San Miguel de Allende!

In New Mexico,we are packed with nothing but wonderful artists & am personally connected with & work closely with many of them.I am personally connected with well known international jewelry designers that I work with as well.

HOW I GOT STARTED:

How I started in the SW jewelry business,was back in 1973, when at that time,I moved to New Mexico from Oregon ( by way of Chicago,Berkeley California) so I can be in a sunny state because of the clouds & rain of Oregon..That was one of the smartest moves I made,because I would not be where I am today or know as much as I know about the business & what I sell,if it wasn't for that move.

At that time,I ended up becoming a silversmith while living in Albuquerque..This was when many turquoise mines were still open & 'natural' turquoise was still plentiful...

My specialty was making Zuni inspired pieces & found myself,creating cluster work & setting LOTS of tiny 2 mm stones..Workmanship" was drilled in me to no end,which has lead me to "What" I buy & "How" I buy, to this day.

Because of my love of all jewelry styles, it opened me up to having knowledge in all facets pertaining to jewelry & giving me experience in not only SW sterling,but I have experience in gold & colored faceted gems,as well..

My real love however is "Vintage Mexican jewelry" that was made in places like Taxco,Guadalajara & Mexico City,during the "Mexican Silver Renaissance"/Spratling days. I always say,"I would rather have a phenomenal large over the top Matilde Poulat (Matl) piece,before a diamond any day"!!

Having the eye I do for quality that I do,is what I use when I do my buying & I hope you love what I bring to the table! Its a look that has Santa Fe, written all over it! It's cultural,it's Folk Art,it's colorful,bold & it's what I love & what I am about!
