Marisa Xiukuauhtli Martinez, creates adornment that connects to a rich, Indigenous, and Mexican cultural heritage. Her work is traditionally handcrafted from ethically sourced metals and natural stones. As an artist, she believes that adornment can be a physical manifestation and extension of one's spirit and values. In that way, it often tells a story and can engage people to ask questions and make connections. She hopes that her work and these stories can inspire hope and connect hearts.
