Silver Bullet thanks noted artist Anthony Lovato, Kewa (Santa Domingo) for creating unique and personal gifts for the speakers and auctioneers. His jewelry and metalwork is formed by tufa casting. The design is done backwards. The silver is melted and poured “backwards” so the design becomes a positive image on the silver with fine sand grains as the natural gesture to the silver. Anthony’s works can be purchased at the Keshi store in Santa Fe at 227 Don Gaspar. What a special gift to those outstanding speakers at the 2014 gala.
