Laguna Pueblo, New Mexico
shard / sherd: noun
In February 2007, Mark Stevens began replicating ancient broken pieces of pottery found around Laguna Pueblo, New Mexico. Mark captured the detailed designs and shapes of the original shards and made these into pieces of jewelry. The old designs are accurately captured in a contemporary 3-d format.

Each original replica is created in sterling silver and entirely made by hand (overlay technique). These replicas permanently preserve the beautiful artwork of our ancestors in a contemporary medium.

This year I will be participating in both the IFAM Show and Santa Fe Indian Market. Many new pieces are in the works and ALL jewelry will be displayed at both shows. Due to the timing, the largest selection will be available at the IFAM show on Thursday and Friday. Thank you for your understanding. I'm looking foward to seeing everyone at both shows.
I would like to express my deepest appreciation for the enduring love and support of my beautiful & talented wife Shannon Stevens.
Shannon provides all the "behind the scenes" work associated with my jewelry business including but not limited to: photography, marketing, sales, website maintenance and she handles all the daily administrative requirements.
Without her support and hard work, I would not have the time to create as much jewelry nor be able to participate in the shows I do.
I truly could not do it without my wife.
Thank you Shannon.
