Latin American Folk Art and Native American Jewelry
The Turquoise Door,
established in 1989, presents the highest quality of Native American jewelry
and Latin American folk art. Many of our artisans are deemed national treasures
in their respective countries.
We acquire our
jewelry and folk art directly from our artisans in their homes and workshops,
and promote the artisans with in-store exhibitions and demonstrations.
The Turquoise Door
represents Calvin Begay, Jimmy Calabaza, Nestoria Coriz, Alvin and Bryon
Yellowhorse, Tommy Singer, Gilbert Smith, and numerous other fine jewelry
artisans from New Mexico and Arizona. We also feature Central Texas’ largest
selection of Russian and Polish amber.
Some of our folk
artists are Felipe and David Linares, the Aguilar Sisters, Demetrio Aguilar,
Moises Jimenez, Augustin Galicia Palacios, several tin workers, potters from
Mata Ortiz, Huichol artisans, and many more.
Vanessa Redgrave, Ann Richards, John
Cougar Mellencamp, Harvey Fierstein, Axl Rose, Don Henley, Carrie Fisher, Tom
Spencer, Ethan Hawk, Courtney Love and myriad others have graced the portals of
the Turquoise Door, and we hope you will too.
