"Jim Morrison" Concho Belt

***** Please note:  After creating one 'replica' of the 'Morrison Belt', Cippy decided he would not make another.   While this belt is no longer available,  Cippy occasionally makes his own version of the 'Morrison Concho Belt'; it is similar to this design but smaller.  You can see two versions here.


During the late 60's when The Doors were at the height of their fame, Jim Morrison purchased a 'concho belt' from Wayne and Irma Bailey of Albuquerque.  Cippy's father, Joe H. Quintana, was the maker of this famous belt.  No one knows exactly what happened to the original after Morrison's untimely death, but recently there has been considerable interest in The Doors and Jim Morrison, including some serious collectors attracted to the 'Morrison Concho Belt'.  Cippy has been making a 'Limited Edition Jim Morrison Concho Belt' that is as close as possible to the original in design, using the same 'stamps' used by his late father.

October 2014

Late August brought Indian Market 2014 ~ another fabulous weekend of visiting with old friends and making new ones.  Always so much fun to see Cippy's older pieces that have been treasured by fans who proudly sport them when they visit our booth.  We're so pleased to have our son, Waddie's, work along side Cippy's at both SWAIA Indian Market in Santa Fe and the Heard Museum Fair in Phoenix in early March.

Cippy's work (and Waddie's!) continue to grow in popularity internationally, primarily in Japan.  Our long time friends, Hiro and Aki Imai of God Trading in Tokyo, continue to be our representatives in Japan.  Hiro first found us at Cochiti Pueblo nearly 20 years ago, and continues to represent the classic, traditional silversmiths with whom he has a close relationship.  I personally believe that Hiro is largely responsible for the knowledge of and popularity of Native American jewelry in Japan.  While in the past Japanese men have been the big collectors of Native American jewelry, more Japanese women are now wearing 'CrazyHorse Classics' ...here's a recently published article in the Japanese women's magazine
