Charlene Reano
De Vargas Street House  “The Oldest House”
Charlene   Sanchez   Reano   and   her   husband   Frank   collaborate   to   create   designs   combining   the   traditional materials   of   Pueblo   people   with   contemporary   motifs.      Using   shell,   turquoise   and   other   stones,   the   two create innovative Santo Domingo mosaic jewelry in vivid colors and varied textures. Frank   comes   from   a   Santo   Domingo   family   of   jewelers   and   grew   up   learning   the   craft.      Charlene   is   from San   Felipe   Pueblo.     After   studying   at   Highlands   University   in   Las   Vegas,   NM,   she   cut   and   set   stones   for gold   and   silver   inlay   at   a   jewelry   manufacturing   company   in Albuquerque.      Her   sister-in-law Angie   Reano, who   is   credited   with   reviving   mosaic   inlay   among   Santo   Domingo   jewelers,   taught   Charlene   her   craft.     Charlene   and   Frank   began   making   jewelry   in   the   1980s.      With   Frank   grinding   the   shell   and   doing   the silver   work,   Charlene   creates,   designs   and   cuts   the   tiny   fragile   stones   to   form   the   multitude   of   mosaics that go into each piece.
