OROPOPO is a husband and wife duo. In their Albuquerque studio they combine new techniques with traditional materials to create objects inspired by Native American, classic Western, and New Mexican culture that breathe new life into American history.

The skeleton of the ocotillo stalk is a distinct artifact of the Southwestern desert and its latticework pattern is the inspiration for this wrapping necklace. Legendary for its exceptional strength and vigor, the ocotillo is an ancient resident of the rocky desert hills whose name is a Spanish derivation of the Aztec word for pine.
