Coriz, James and Doris

I am a great fan of James and Doris Coriz of Kewa Pueblo (Santo Domingo). Jewelry-making is truly a family affair. James hand-cuts every stone and shell and Doris and the rest of the family help to string their beautiful Native American jewelry. The Corizs’ are known for their stunning traditional fantail necklaces made with spiney oyster shell and high grade Kingman Turquoise. These necklaces can be seen on Native dancers at Kewa Pueblo as well as fashion models.
