Welcome, my name is Colin Coonsis, I am a jeweler and an artist of Zuni & Navajo descent. I grew up on the Zuni reservation and often took part in a fascinating and ancient culture known as the Zuni. As a child I watched and learned from my mother her jewelry making and inlay techniques that I would someday translate into my own vision. It was because of teachers, individual collectors, and a passion for my art that I would delve into a universe of art entwined with vision, legacy, and Native American tradition that I yearn to share with the world. My passion for my art carries me forward. With everything I do, my story unravels; not always so clearly but my passion always takes me places.
