Mary Coriz Lovato

Daughter of the late Leo Coriz, mother of noted jewelers Anthony and the late Harold Lovato, Mary has continued to make jewelry in traditional motifs and materials. Her inlaid pin/pendants, shaped like hands are especially noteworthy.
She likes to feel she contributes to the continuation of tradition at her Pueblo. Her favored styles – inlaid shells, mosaic inlay in silver hand forms – are worn in the ceremonial dances as well as eagerly acquired by collectors.
