Her style is understated elegance and simplicity combining different metals and stones. Her masterful metal working techniques make her jewelry entirely wearable but it also must “lie and feel right”. Samora Studio is an award-winning, Taos family-business, inspired by her culture and creative spirit. Maria works with her husband, jeweler and photographer Kevin Rebholtz.  Note: you must be an FIA member to attend events.
