Event description: Charles Loloma was one of the first Native American jewelers to use gold instead of silver and diamonds and other precious stones in addition to turquoise, coral, and shell. His innovative designs, so sculptural in quality, were internationally acclaimed. And his clients included celebrities, monarchs, and presidents. This film examines the work of Charles Loloma - and how the visionary behind the enchanting jewelry managed to break the barriers that separated Indian traditionalism and mainstream modern art. For him, the art world and the Hopi world were one.
