About The Artist:
Myron began making jewelry as a child, learning from his father and grandmother, who worked in a traditional Zuni inlay style.
Thumbing through old jewelry issues of Arizona Highways sparked young Myron's interest in contemporary designs. Since he
began working as a professional artist in the early 1990s, he has continued to experiment with materials and techniques, creating
innovative, often startlingly intricate pieces.
He currently incorporates finely cut-out, or "pierced", symbols into his jewelry. Dragonflies, turtles, frogs, birds, and horses float
across a background of soft textured silver overlaid with 14K gold spirals and male/female rain symbols. The symbols are inspired
by the petroglyphs near his home in Zuni, NM.
