Adornment that tells a story and connects to a rich, Indigenous and Mexican cultural heritage, handcrafted from ethically sourced metals and natural stones. Expressions of a life that is authentic, nurturing, and grounded in culture and tradition. Created pieces of adornment that spark flames and connect hearts through stories they tell. Sharing these vignettes of our beautiful culture and beliefs in my work as a way to continue the story. To celebrate this legacy and to keep some of the most precious parts of our history alive. These are the main goals in my work as a Jewelry designer, Metalsmith, Teacher, and Mentor. It is a journey that I am on and I invite you to join me.
Tlazocamati • Infinite Gratitude
Marisa Xiukuauhtli Martinez
I believe that art has the power to move people, unite people and heal people. In sharing these values and gifts through teaching and mentoring others, my hope is that people will grow in their creativity, make meaningful connections and be inspired to use the confidence gained in learning throughout all areas of their lives. Sharing this knowledge with others is my offering in gratitude and my way of closing the circle. To find out more about classes and private instruction please visit my website: www.marisa-martinez.com
