Genuine native American Lapis and Sterling Silver cuff by Michael Garcia aka Na NA Ping

Michael Garcia is recognized as a contemporary jeweler with over 20 years of experience. Born in the village of Guadalupe, located outside of Tempe, Arizona, he was taught the basic jewelry techniques by family members at a young age. He now resides on the Nambe Pueblo Indian Reservation in northern New Mexico.

All of his designs are hand crafted, and one of a kind. His designs are drawn from a culture as old as time and as diverse as the future. He uses some of the finest materials available and blends them with specialized techniques. He is comfortable with both traditional and contemporary designs, sometimes combining both in a single piece.

He is a diverse artist who also works with stone sculpture and incorporates his lapidary techniques into a wide range of stone sculptures. He attended Arizona State University and later transferred to the University of New Mexico, graduating with a B.A. in Business. All of his art bears his trademark Na Na Ping which is his Tewa name for Aspen Mountain.
