Alice Quam and Duane Quam
Alice and Duane Quam have collaborated on clusterwork jewelry since 1945. She sets the stones, and he does the silverwork. Alice's parents, Wayne and Doris Ondelacy, taught them. Alice and Duane's daughter, Lorraine Waatsa, works in the same style but with a wider range of stones than her parents, who usually work in turquoise, preferably of the Sleeping Beauty variety. Their daughter, Alvina, does nugget work. They sign their work with A & DQ.
