Dennis Hogan

Dennis Hogan has a degree in economics and studio art and worked in advertising and then in financial planning after leaving college. However, his passion for the western spirit and his continued interest in fine art motivated him to leave his career in business and moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico to pursue his dream of working as an artist.

He began by braiding leather bola ties and worked as an apprentice for three years to his good friend Charlie Favour. In 2000, he moved to Santa Fe and began selling and creating his own leather and jewelry designs. He continues to work as a full-time artist and strives to develop his skills each year.

His recent work has been heavily influenced by the old jewelry of the southwest.  Inspired by turn-of-the-century Navajo designs, Dennis forges his silver jewelry from ingot bars - hammering, stamping and filing into form as a silversmith would have over 100 years ago.  Dennis says that his life has been an accumulation of experiences, influences and hard work; his jewelry is clearly the result of the same.

Dennis considers himself lucky to be an artist and is most grateful to his friend Charlie Favour, his wife Lydia, and to his family who has always supported his artistic journey. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his wife Lydia and daughters Alyvia and Victoria. He enjoys photography, fly fishing in Colorado, and spending time with his family.


Although the best way to test the size and fit of a piece of jewelry is to try it on in the store, we know that is not always an option. In an effort to help you choose the piece that is right for you, we have included measurements of each piece on the website. Here is how our measurements are defined:


Finding the right size bracelet for your wrist has always been a tricky endeavor, since, unlike rings, there isn't a standardized, universal sizing chart for wrist size. One reason for this is that we all have different shaped wrists, some of us have round wrists, while others have more oval. Bracelets, like wrists, also have different shapes.

So, while bracelet sizing will never be an exact science, we've done what we can to ensure the greatest chance of a comfortable fit. The best thing you can do if you don't know your wrist size is to take a soft measuring tape and loosely measure the circumference of your wrist at the point you plan on wearing it. Try not to have the measuring tape dig into your skin, as this will result in a smaller than ideal size. Once you have the circumference of your wrist, compare it to the chart below to find the correct bracelet size. If your wrist measures in-between two sizes, we recommend rounding up to the larger size. (ie: if your wrist measures 6.375"- you should shop for size "Medium" bracelets.)

You may want to drill down further on the bracelet sizing to make sure the cuff is a comfortable fit. You will notice on our website that we generally list four measurements for bracelets:

Keep in mind that certain bracelets can be adjusted slightly to fit your wrist, but those with inlay or stones all the way around will be damaged if bent. In any case, it is always best to check with with us to see if a particular bracelet is adjustable.

Lastly, have no fear! If you order a bracelet that doesn't fit, send it back for one that does! We want this to be a positive experience, you should never wear something that isn't 100% comfortable. More on our return policy here.


Sizing belt buckles is pretty straightforward. The height and width are self-explanatory, and the belt width describes the maximum belt width the buckle will fit on.

Concha Belts

We try to include the height and width for the conchas, as well as the buckle (if different), and the width of the belt they are on. The length of the concha belts can be less important, because these belts are often made quite long to accommodate many waist sizes, and then can be shortened to fit the wearer. If you are concerned whether or not a belt will fit you, just ask. We are happy to size most of our concha belts before shipping.
