Alice Warder Seely

Alice Warder Seely's mixed Indian, Spanish and Anglo heritage reflects the rich cultural diversity of New Mexico. Seely is the stepdaughter of Navajo artist Ha-So-De (Narciso Abeyta), "The Gauguin of American Indian Art". Her maternal grandmothers, Eleanor Brownell and Alice Howland, came to Santa Fe from Philadelphia in the 1930s. Seely's paternal grandparents were from the small Spanish village of Guadalupita in Northern New Mexico and were descendants of San Juan and Comanche Indians. Alice's biological father, William Warder, was a New Mexico muralist and landscape painter.

Seely, who makes her home in Hondo, New Mexico, is a writer, painter, sculptor and jewelry designer. Seely shows her art in galleries in Santa Fe, Scottsdale, New York, Michigan and Florida.

Her pewter jewelry, which she designs, casts and hand finishes, is featured in more than 350 stores and galleries across the country.

Seely's jewelry line is produced, by her, in her studio. Her design lines include pins, pendants, necklaces and bracelets.

Her latest creation is a line of pins packaged in matchbooks, with writing appropriate to the issues women face as they reach the "prime" of their lives.

Seely has been commissioned to design and install a number of Public Art projects, including large oil paintings and murals, with grant money supplied by various governmental and private organizations.

In 1987, Seely served as a consultant to the New Mexico School of Mining and Technology, where she developed techniques for explosive forming three dimensional images out of steel, copper and brass. In her documented experiments, she used C-2 plastic explosives to create a mural for Macey Center and a piece for the Center for Explosives Technology at NMSMT, Socorro, New Mexico. In 1987, Seely appeared on Good Morning America to demonstrate her explosive art techniques.

      Very nice art and style.
      The clasp, I like (aesthetically) - but the sizing to your wrist is not sufficient enough to allow the bracelet to lay as you might like.

              I bought this for my mother for mothers day and all she could say was "stunning." I've bought her many mothers day gifts and I've never gotten that response from her. She did say that it is a little too heavy to wear all day so she has to take it off after a few hours but she is wearing it and loves it so I'm happy.
