I have been asked quite a few times about this great photo and people say “Who are those guys and that woman with you”? Well this shot was taken as Lovena and I were moving into this wonderful space in 1987 on Marshall Way in Scottsdale by Georgia Loloma.
The roster is as follows:
Painter, David Johns is to the far left, then; jeweler James Little, jeweler Harvey Begay, sandpainter, Joe Ben Jr., jeweler Larry Golsh, Master Jeweler, painter, potter, Charles Loloma, My Great Aunt Lovena Ohl, the most incredible person ever and myself and next to me Shaliyah Ben, Joe’s daughter and last but not least is Charles Supplee, jeweler extraordinaire!
Special times back then and even more to come as I get ready to celebrate 35 wonderful years this November in such a great business!
