Well-known jewelers and lapidary artists are the husband-and-wife team of Sibert and Juanita Kallestewa of Zuni Pueblo. Their hallmark stamp is SJK.

Their specialty is working with silver, turquoise, and mother of pearl. They have certainly mastered the lapidary skill to produce such exquisite jewelry to include inlay and cluster jewelry.

Both from Zuni Pueblo, Sibert was born ca. 1950s and Juanita ca. 1947. They have collaborated since the 1970s or earlier.
