Amelia Joe-Ch
andler is the Indian Arts and Crafts Association Artist of the Year for 2006-2007.

Amelia's traditional DinĂ© (Navajo) background is reflected in all aspects of her jewelry creations.  Though her work is beautifully contemporary, her designs never completely shift from more traditional DinĂ© designs.

Amelia holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education from New Mexico State University, and a Masters degree in Art Education from Indiana University.

In our opinion, Amelia has beautifully redefined the term "wearing art" as you can see here.
