Ben is a well-known artist who lived outside Gallup, New Mexico. Unfortunately Ben is no longer with us; he passed in 2013. He and his wife Angeline created fine quality jewelry, both in stone work as well as inlay for many years. They were married for over 37 years. Angeline continues to create pieces today that are highly sought after. Their daughter Vangie is also following in her parents' footsteps and is producing some wonderful pieces. We will definitely miss Ben, he was an outstanding artist! Quantity Available: 1
