Nancy Lasconsello (1952 - ) and Ruddell Lasconsello (1959 - )

Nancy and Ruddell Lasconsello specialize in overlay inlay. Nancy learned from her father, Jacob Haloo, starting in 1972. Ruddell started out as a painter, and began making jewelry in 1977 after Nancy taught him the craft. She does the inlay, and he does the silverwork and etching on their collaborative pieces. Nancy's sister is Dolly Banteah.
