Ramona Bird

Santo Domingo artist Ramona Bird has always been a full-time jewelry maker - that is, except for being a full-time mother to three children. She is the daughter of Josephine Coriz who taught her to drill and cut stone. They still work together but also have their own jewelry lines too.

Their work is some of the finest, and we mean both in quality of work and use of delicate, very tiny heishi beads. That makes for exquisite drape and feel to their necklaces - almost like liquid stone.

What is heishi?

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.
