Charles Loloma is most famous for his imaginative jeweler but he also was a painter, a sculptor, a potter, a basket maker, a designer of houses and a stained glass artist. He then became a lithographer in 1980.
Loloma was born in the village of Hotevilla on the Hopi Reservation in 1920. His father was a weaver and his mother a basket maker. As a child, he began painting and by the time he graduated from High School, he had already illustrated a book for Edward Kennard. Loloma's jewelry made him a famous and wealthy man but it did not quench his thirst for finding another manner of expressing his artistic talents.
