  • Born on the Hopi reservation and surrounded by culture and art, Adams was inspired to create his own style with jewelry. He looks to his parents for inspiration; his mother is a Hopi/Tewa potter and his father is a Katsina doll carver. Each earring is created using gourd or basswood. He hand-cuts, shapes, and then paints each earring using acrylics. A final coating of protective gloss seals the design and gives the earring a shine. He explained, "I love to incorporate color and Hopi symbolism into my designs all referencing nature as it occurs naturally."
