Raylan and Patty Edaakie have moved from making small, basic pieces of jewelry to bigger and more elaborate pieces. When they first started making jewelry, their designs were simple and required fewer pieces of stones. Now, the designs in their pieces have fine lines and details. Their jewelry has also shifted from strictly traditional pieces to include more contemporary work.
