MoCNA Store and Lloyd Kiva New Gallery

The MoCNA Museum Store offers an extraordinary collection of both contemporary and traditional jewelry, basketry, pottery, paintings and prints created by well-known Native American artists. Santa Fe’s most expansive assortment of books on Native American arts and crafts, tribal history, biographies and literature can also be found in the MoCNA store. In addition, there is an extensive selection of DVDs and CDs.

This winter, the MoCNA Store carries the work of several exciting new artists. From the far north, we offer the amazing jewelry collection created by Shaaxsaani. She takes scraps of fur from animals that her Tlingit people hunt, and she uses the fur to fashion bracelets, rings and earrings. The combination of opalescent bluish-green abalone, fresh water pearls and colorful seed beads with the fur from polar bears, otters, seals, wolves and ermines results in pieces that are both exotic and beautiful. No other store in the “lower 48” carries Shaaxsaani’s jewelry, and it’s selling fast. Come in and see it before it’s sold out!

The MoCNA Store has also brought in the exquisitely well-crafted porcupine quill and bead work from the award-winning Metis artist, Marguerite Houle. Known primarily for her incredible bandolier bags, Marguerite has agreed to make smaller items uniquely for us. We carry her earrings, pendants and barrettes. There is nothing else like this work in the store.

More locally, we have been able to acquire the gorgeous stone inlay work from Charlene Reano. This artist is a master at working in the traditional Santo Domingo style, but she hand picks and hand cuts stone that aren’t normally seen in the traditional Kewa style. Charlene’s earrings and her two-sided necklaces are exceptionally colorful and desirable.

For the holidays, don’t forget our Native American Christmas ornaments. Besides having the hand-painted spirit animals made by Navajo artist Peter Ray James, we also carry the lovely hand-beaded glass Christmas balls made by IAIA alumna and MoCNA Sales Associate, Laura Walkingstick.
