Esteban and Rochelle Najera

Esteban Najera is one of the treasures of the Zuni fetish carving world. He was one the five cousins who were the first Zunis to learn how to carve antler safely under a fume hood circa 1985. Esteban's specialty was very fine detail. He loves to carve skeletons - and has even carved a skeleton rock band with instruments. Challis bought and sold many of Esteban's pieces during the early years of Sunshine Studio.

Rochelle Quam married Esteban in the late 1990s. She is the granddaughter of the famous Zuni silversmith Alice Quam. For the first few years of her marriage, she was busy with their four children. Recently, she has been learning to carve under Esteban's guidance. She has carved several good jet horses and ravens

We have collected a few of Esteban's and Rochelle's carvings and proudly offer them to you here!
