Ola Eriacho

Winner of multiple awards, Ola is a highly reputed jeweler, specializing in traditional Zuni work. She has always specialized in working with stones, cutting and inlaying them in the classic Zuni styles. “I first learned about jewelry-making from my mother, who was known for her beautiful needlepoint …. Later, I learned how to inlay the stones on my own.” More recently, she has worked in tandem with her husband Tony, for several decades. Sunfaces and sunburst designs are a favorite, since she is from the Sun Clan.
We mourn the recent passing of Tony Eriacho, one of the wonderful artists and human beings who have left us, too soon, this year.
