(Santo Domingo) (Kewa)
Santo Domingo Pueblo artists are famous for their skill in making hand rolled and cut beads known as heishi. Made from shell, turquoise, and other stones, they are painstakingly cut by hand into delicate beads and strung on necklaces and made into earrings. Santo Domingo artist Ramona Bird has always been a full-time jewelry maker. She is the daughter of Josephine Coriz who taught her to drill and cut stones.
