Wearable art, each piece is eye-catching and arouses interest in the history of this decoration. This is probably why each piece of jewelry is packed in a matchbox, accompanied by a description, and sometimes even a poem written by her. Traditionally, the designer signed her decorations “Urban Fetishes” and the year of manufacture, mostly 1989 or 2000. Sometimes the labeling includes the artist’s name Alice Seely.
Presented in over 350 stores and galleries across the country, her artwork adorns galleries in Santa Fe, Scottsdale, New York, Michigan and Florida. Alice Warder Seely’s blended Indian, Spanish, and Anglo-Indian heritage reflects New Mexico’s rich cultural diversity.
