Leonard Nez

Leonard started out from age 19-26 years old as a heavy equipment operator. His wife Marian and her family were silversmiths and he was inspired by them. After creating his first pendant, he was asked to make 15 more! Within a year he was able to support himself with his jewelry making.

Well known artist “Gibson Nez” was a great mentor and role model. He took Leonard under his wing and called him brother, even though they share the same last name they are not related.

He has 4 children and 7 grandchildren as of 2010. One of his grandchildren is showing great promise as a future jeweler.

In Leonard’s spare time he loves to rope in the Rodeos on the weekend. He even lost his right thumb while roping, but it has not affected his great work. He enjoys all that he does in creating his jewelry. He believes it all comes from his HEART!
