Patricia McCleery has been fascinated with the amulets and talismans of ancient culturesThe ancient cliff dwellings of the Southwest inspired her to use Prehistoric Mammoth tusk, and Australian Boulder Opal in combination with silver and 22K gold to create pieces that connect us to a mysterious ancient message.  An ancient message retold in modern time.




Highly textured sterling silver with accents of 22K gold surround this bright Australian Boulder Opal. Silver plated metal chain.


Celebrated in Santa Fe for her innovative designs, Patricia studied with famed Hopi Jeweler Charles Loloma and designed for the Smithsonian Catalog. Lapidary Journal, American Style Magazine and the Santa Fean have noted her work.

After 25 seasons in Tequesta’s Gallery Square, they relocated in 2007 to a new venue — still in Tequesta, and only a half-block from US 1 instead of a half-mile. The boutique is now at 140 Bridge Road, just one short block south of Tequesta Drive. (If you drive down US 1, Bridge Road is where you’ll see the CVS Pharmacy and Texaco Service Station. Look for Gallery Five  four doors west of the Texaco Station.)


For the season, December-March, their showroom is open Monday through Saturday 10-5. For the rest of the year, they are open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 to 5, and at other times “when the spirit moves us.” Of course, they’ll be available by appointment. If you’re coming from out of town, we suggest that you call first (561-747-5555). You can always shop on-line 24/7 at


The largest element is 2″ diameter, sterling silver and 22K gold with reverse copper and 22K gold on beads. Hand knitted chain. Necklace is 18″ long.


“We are proud of the success of Gallery Five and pleased that the gallery features work of more than 150 American artists from 40 states, with no imports (except for several wonderful Canadian artists). We invite you to visit the Gallery Five showroom to browse through our 62 drawers of jewelry and accessories and all the other custom-designed displays”.

You’re invited to browse through all the virtual drawers in this site to see the hand-crafted wonders by creative artists that Paula and Paul find as they travel around the U.S. in their search for fresh and original crafts.
