“Jim Harrison credits Preston Monongye and Jessie Monongye for his success as a fine jewelry artisan. They shared their techniques with him and opened up his mind to his own designs. His designs are reflective of the bright stars of the New Mexico nights and the geometric forms of the landscape. They all play a part in his finely detailed inlay jewelry. Jim enjoys “playing golf, guitar, songwriting, traveling, sightseeing, making new friends, Mother Nature, and art shows.”
