Mark Jimenez is from Santa Fe, NM and has made jewelry for 31 years. Mark comes from a long line of artists and craftsmen dating back to 1732. The works that are featured at art festivals are small paintings in stone pendants. By using native stone, Mark is able to create a natural landscape. Each piece that he makes is one-of-a-kind. Mark takes the stone to a certain level then lets the natural stratus and color of the stone come through. The beautiful mountains and desert scenes of the Southwest inspire Mark’s work.
