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.
Laguna Pueblo is one of 19 Pueblos in the State of New Mexico. For more information on Laguna Pueblo and others please visit www.indianpueblo.org

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.
