Jeweler Marisa Martinez’s career is marked by her family ties, her Mexican-American heritage, and the women mentors in her life. She brings a fine art background to her craft, designing her jewelry with an eye for color theory and composition. Her intuitive combination of gemstones, hand-blown glass beads and precious metals makes for vibrant jewelry pieces and colorful ofrendas/altars.
