Size Guide

A beautiful unique piece by the late Kitty Van Meter Sadock, this colorful creation is a linen monoprint embellished with oil-painted characters. The piece, titled “The Shaliko’s Dance” dates back to the mid-1900s, and is a fabulous way to add some southwestern style to your abode.

Kitty grew up in Moline, IL. She was a graduate of Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA, receiving a Master of Fine Arts degree. She moved to Albuquerque in 1948 to devote to her art. She married Dr. Theodore Sadock in 1950 and moved to New York for him to complete his residency. While in New York, Kitty worked as a window dresser for a downtown department store. Kitty and her husband returned to Albuquerque in 1952 where she became notable on the art scene. Her paintings are in both private and public collections.

Kitty was a member of the New Mexico Art League, a charter member of the New Mexico Watercolor Society and the Southwest Writers Workshop.

Product Disclaimers



In the absence of a specific assertion or certification to the contrary, Double D Ranch does not warrant, represent, or suggest that any particular item or product which is sold or offered for sale by Double D Ranch in any forum or venue of sale is created or produced by any Indian or Indian Tribe, is an Indian product, or was created by any Indian arts and crafts organization as such terms are defined by the laws of the United States, or the laws of any other jurisdiction, including without limitation, the Indian Arts and Crafts Act and rules set forth by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board.

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
