Santa Fe Crafts Inc was established in 1984. Owners Barbara Goldeen and John Selmer offer high quality, authentic Native American Indian jewelry and crafts; and vintage Mexican jewelry to customers throughout the world.
We have developed private collections of Native American Indian jewelry and crafts in the United States and Japan that include Hopi basketry and katsina dolls, Native American Indian jewelry and Pueblo pottery.
In 1998, we mounted the first museum exhibition devoted to Hopi Third Mesa wicker basketry at the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles. We contributed to the exhibition and catalog titled, Circles Of Life, at the Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah, California, from March through June, 2006, which traveled to the Arizona State Museum. We have lectured on Hopi Third Mesa wicker basketry at major museums throughout the U.S.
