  • Ellouise Padilla is an acclaimed jewelry maker from Santo Domingo Pueblo, known for her one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and couture interpretation of the ancient art of heishi. She learned jewelry-making from her parents, Don and Nancy Crespin, both renowned artists themselves.

Padilla’s one-of-a-kind reversible pendant necklaces are one of her signature jewelry styles, collected around the world for their versatility and feminine style. See Featured Artist Page
  • Many Native American jewelry artists working today are inspired by the interplay between traditional and contemporary styles. In their work they feel it is important to honor their history, heritage and culture, including the art forms and techniques passed down through generations of Pueblo families. By mixing and matching techniques, materials and themes that are contemporary and traditional, they create inspiring work that has made the modern Native American art world extremely vibrant.
  • Mosaic inlay jewelry is a signature style of Santo Domingo jewelers. Artists create mosaic inlay by attaching tiny gemstone tiles to a shell base, forming colorful and unique patterns. The technique can be traced back to early forms of jewelry unearthed at Anasazi sites throughout the Southwest, and many artists model their inlay designs after these early artifacts. Angie Reano Owen is credited with reviving the tradition of inlaid jewelry in Santo Domingo Pueblo in the 1970s, and today Santo Domingo mosaic inlay is one of the jewelry styles most sought after by collectors of Native American art.
