Emilio & Marguerite Chavez - Santo Domingo Pueblo

Pena Blanca, NM | Shell Jewelry

Emilio Chavez was born and raised by family who taught him how to hand-make turquoise grinned necklaces and slab earrings, during his teenage years in Santo Domingo Pueblo in New Mexico. After high school, he always wanted to work with metal in his jewelry making and had to go back to school at The Institute of Indian Arts Collage in Santa Fe, NM. He later met his wife Marguerite and collaborated their jewelry. They both travel extensively throughout the country to show their art at most Native American art shows and museums. For over 20 years they still enjoy working together.
