Married over 40 years, Lorraine & Luwayne represent a major confluence of 20th century Zuni jewelry heritage in design and artistry crafting signature seminal designs with the highest degree of craftsmanship. Their preferred materials are coral and the highest grades of natural turquoise set in sterling silver and they sign their pieces with LW Zuni. Luwaynes family includes some of the most famous Zuni needlepoint jewelers, including Bryant Waatsa (father), Bryant Waatsa, Jr (brother), Evans Waatsa (brother, decd). Lorraine is a premier, award winning Zuni cluster work jeweler whose family lineage is even more well-known in the annals of Zuni jewelry. Her parents, Alice and Dwayne Quam, were active throughout the second half of the 20th century, starting in the 1950s. One generation back were Alices parents, Doris and Warren Ondelacy starting as early as the 1920s. When Alice died in 2008, collectors scrambled to own her pieces. Prices soared and are still very high and they remain difficult to find. Although Lorraine and Luwayne are still young (in their late 50s) and active, their pieces are sought after in the same manner and will continue to be so for decades and beyond.
