Carl and Irene Clark are well known for the extremely fine quality and detail that goes into their micro-fine intarsia inlay jewelry. Carl and Irene are both Navajo and come from large families.

They work together to handcraft their beautiful jewelry. They both cut, assemble and inlay the stones and Irene hand fabricates the gold and silver. Irene does much of the design work and Carl does the tufa stone casting. They feel that their work reflects the Navajo tradition because, "We use good feelings and make jewelry traditionally with precision and care without rushing. Our jewelry takes much longer to make than common piece of jewelry.”

Carl and Irene’s work has been featured in many books.
