Ave Maria Coriz

One of Santo Domingo Pueblo’s many jewelers specializing in heishi. Ava learned the fundamentals of grinding and stringing stones by hand, at the age of 14. Not much later, she learned about silversmithing. She combines her knowledge to fashion fine necklaces, using high-quality stones.
Her talent and skill have been taken up by her nephews, Rodney and Daniel Coriz, in a new generation.
