Memories of the Mimbres

Claire is still proudly displaying the very first necklace she designed. The Memories of the Mimbres necklace pays careful homage to the animal imagery found on the pottery of the Mimbres River Culture.  These native people painted sacred vessels with beautiful abstracted images of animals.  Broken pots were buried to insure harvests and bountiful water. This culture flourished from 1100AD-1300AD and then mysteriously dwindled. However, the exquisite pottery they left behind and found in modern anthropological digs has inspired a new generation of artists.
