Cheryl Yestewa

Cheryl Yestewa (1958-2019) created jewelry of exquisite craftsmanship. She was born on the Hopi Reservation in Keams Canyon, Arizona to a Hopi father and Navajo mother. She lived and worked in Camp Verde, Arizona. Sadly, Cheryl Yestewa died in February 2019, only 60 years old. She worked in a variety of materials including gold, silver, turquoise, opal, sugilite and oyster shell. Her necklaces are iconic, often copied, never truly duplicated. Notable pieces by Cheryl are in the Heard Museum and the National Museum of the American Indian.
