Joe and Althea Cajero create equally stunning but very different art: He is an award-winning sculptor in clay and bronze, she is a leading contemporary jeweler. Yet their most intimate creation is that of a true life partnership.

“My understanding of my creativity is that it can be a deeper expression from my soul,” said Althea, whose mother, Dorothy, was a silversmith from Acoma Pueblo and whose father, Tony Tortalita, is a lapidary jeweler and tribal leader of Kewa/Santo Domingo Pueblo. Her parents made their living selling their art under the portal at the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, as well as at art shows.
