Sharidynn Denetchiley, Designer
Sharidynn represents the Dine (Navajo) Nation, originally from the Four Corners Region, and resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since beginning her career seven years ago, she has taken part in many jewelry and fashion shows across New Mexico to show case her artistry. Her resume includes collaborations with other Native American models and designers across the country, as well as First Nations who represent the Canadian region. Being proactively involved in the entertainment business, Sharidynn produced her own Fashion Show in 2012 during the Gatherings of Nations Pow Wow in Albuquerque, NM. Her work was featured in Native Max Magazine Summer 2012, and Spring 2013.
Aside from jewelry, she has also done costumes for independent films, and is currently involved as a Wardrobe Manager, Event Planner, and Marketing Specialist for Buffalo In The Room Film Production. Although she can design garments and costumes, her main focus is representing her jewelry line. She believes there is a great number of fashion designers, but sometime the accessories lime light is forgotten or does not have enough exposure.
Sharidynn strives to inspire other Native Americans, especially the younger generations, that there is role in every industry for all races if they believe and follow their dreams. It takes action for one to follow, which is admired by dedication, and hard work. Living in two worlds of traditional and contemporary, she finds her balance in composing Contemporary Native American Jewelry, as she represents a new generation of jewelers.
