Artist: Rudy & Mary Coriz, Kewa / Santo Domingo Pueblo, New Mexico, USA
Native American Indian Jewelry
Something new this year, smaller versions of their signature earrings. Rudy and Mary's unique style sets them apart from their contemporaries. They don't do a lot through re-sellers so I'm always glad when I can get a few pieces from them. These are dominated by bright blue turquoise and a serpentine back.
Remember to check the dimensions-the photos are extreme close-ups
