Ray "Duck" Garcia (San Felipe Pueblo) was born into a family of jewelry and pottery artists, and it was at the age of ten that his own interest in jewelry began. He began working with his family, cutting stones and making turquoise and heishi necklaces for traditional wear. It was at the age of sixteen that his mother formally introduced Ray to silversmith work. Today he carries on the traditions he learned, creating jewelry by hand, cutting and fashioning his stones and metal himself for his art.
