I am a 37 -year-old native from Zuni Pueblo N.M. I have been blessed with a skill to hand make and design authentic Zuni petite point jewelry. I have been creating my one-of-a-kind designs for over 12 years.
Zuni petite point is a time consuming art, and patience is a key to produce quality designs.
I am a decorated U.S. Marine Veteran and live on our Zuni Pueblo reservation. I welcome you to our Pueblo to see demonstrations of how I create my work.
I would like to thank NHMU for the opportunity to show my best work and receive the Best of Show award.
Ehlah'kwa (thank you).
