presentazioni dell’artista: Sunshine Reeves – Navajo
Winner of numerous awards, including Santa Fe Indian Market and Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial, Daniel “Sunshine” Reeves is one of the star Indian jewelers of today. He is gaining fame as the creator of lifelike miniature trains created from sterling silver as well. His complex and precise stamp work is distinctive as it covers the entirety of each piece of his jewelry.
Sunshine is the younger brother of renowned silversmith Gary Reeves and of David Reeves (now deceased), who was so instrumental in teaching the craft to both Gary and Sunshine, as well as their half-brothers Darrel and Andy Cadman. Sunshine’s work, like that of his brother Gary, is present in the collections of the Heard Museum in Phoenix and he has won numerous awards for his work.
