Mary Tafoya
Mary Tafoya, born Mary Coriz, is one of 11 children. She learned her jewelry making techniques from her father with influence from her mother. She works from sketches and soon she creates her collector's pieces. Her unique approach in jewelry design is similar to a painter's technique. Mary draws from nature and the earth and she's wonderful at capturing color, motion and form. She's an extraordinary artist.
