Lorenzo and Mary Tafoya combine their artistic talents to create unique, traditional and contemporary jewelry.  These skills were acquired at an early age from their parents – Lorenzo’s parents versed him in silversmithing, lapidary work, and jewelry design, while Mary’s background is in handmade turquoise and shell heishe work. These award winning artists are best known for their whimsical, multi-colored inlay jewelry work based on the traditional Santo Domingo Pueblo heishe and depression era art of the 1940s and 1950s. Mary and Lorenzo will greet visitors in the studios and talk about their art and culture.
