Michael Dukepoo was a Hopi/Yaqui silvermith, son of award-winning jewelry artist Na Na Ping. Michael, and his wife Causandra, specialized in handsome cobble inlay, with excellent quality stones. Having learned jewelry-making from his father (and Causandra’s father-in-law), Na Na Ping, the Dukepoos are extremely technically talented. The Dukepoos quickly began getting recognition for their beautiful work. Noted for a sophisticated way with inlay, they reached new heights with magnificent bracelets, pendants, earrings, and rings.
Michael and Causandra live in Taos, New Mexico with their children. The Dukepoos take great pride in choosing only natural and high quality stones. You can rest assured you are buying a high quality piece that you can enjoy for many, many years!
Sadly, Michael passed away on July 28, 2022. He lives behind an amazing legacy of creative and beautiful art.
