The Santo Domingo Pueblo Indians are known world wide for their talents as lapidary artists. Bead making is a timeless art form that has changed little over the years. Before the arrival of the Spaniards, the Santo Domingo people actively mined turquoise from what is now the Cerrillos Mine, and made turquoise necklaces which were used for trading between tribes. Each bead is entirely cut, shaped, drilled and polished by hand. Even today, many of the village’s people make all or part of their livelihood by making jewelry, pottery, and beaded art work.

The Abeyta Family and Priscilla Nieto live in the Santo Domingo Pueblo located in New Mexico. They are respected artists, whose work appears in many galleries and museums across the United States. They also show annually at the Santa Fe Indian Market. We are proud to showcase this beautiful jewelry from the Abeyta family and Priscilla Nieto as timeless and traditional art.
