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.
